Details: 

The Mater Hospital in Dublin’s north inner city is one of 25 named in controversial legislation where a pregnancy can be terminated if the woman’s life is in danger.

In a statement today, hospital chiefs said they had carefully considered the Protection of Life During Pregnancy Act and would abide by the law.

Not sure how the Pope is going to take that news, but I imagine a lot of people will be interested.

I know an OB/GYN who did an abortion for exactly that reason. After more than 20 years in the field, it was her first abortion. She cried many times because she felt bad about it, but it was the right thing to do. It’s also still the only one she has done, as far as I know.

The Pope complained about too many orthodox Catholic complaining to Rome about doctrinal matters. Why would the Pope care? The Pope has abandoned pro-lifers, and especially unborn children.
