Isn't the real issue here rape or incest? Is that what 'health problems' is a euphemism for?

Abortion will never be banned in cases where the woman has health problems or "her life is in danger."
Therefore, "if I have this baby I will go into major depression."
"If I have this baby I will kill myself." Just say those magic words and no matter what the restrictions are they will have to perform the abortion.
No, "health" is a euphemism for "Pregnancy is a drag, and having a baby would interfere with my social life (education, career, vacation), and I didn't even like the guy."

(I'm a shallow, demagoguic sectarian because it's easier than working for a living.)
Health concerns is a euphemism for mental health. This is in case the woman could potentially suffer from depression, or anxiety or anything after the birth. It is an intentionally broad exception so as to render all restrictions unenforceable.
