Never?

Never.

“In a small number of cases, however, the treatment given may unintentionally result in the death of the unborn child. But in such cases the life is never directly and intentionally taken and everything is done to save the child. The key moral issue, therefore, for Catholics is that the life of the unborn can never be taken intentionally.”

 

John Fleming, Bishop of Killala
