Subject: RE: BS: Catholic religion response to 'today'
The pregnancy had already terminated *itself*. That fetus' heart had stopped three days before and it was DEAD. So it was no longer really an abortion.

A similar thing happened to my mother when I was very small. What would have been a very-much-wanted child (as was the case with Savita Halappanavar) died. So, nearly, did my mother, of the same internal poisoning. When the baby-to-be is already deceased, it really does move the goal posts.

Fortunately for my mother (and me), the hospital acted on medical principles rather than personal beliefs.
