What about abortion to protect the mother’s life or health?

The Pro-Life Action League rejects abortion for the alleged purpose of preserving the health of the mother. Courts have defined the “health of the mother” so broadly as to include any aspect of mental or emotional health—effectively rendering this “exception” into an absolute license to abort.

We similarly reject the “life of the mother” exception. Over four hundred physicians have declared that abortion is never necessary to save a mother’s life; and even if it were, it is wrong to deliberately, directly kill one innocent person to save another.
