Issue Position: Protection of the Unborn
Every human being has the right to live regardless of the circumstances of conception or whether or not the parents want the child. If the life of the mother is at risk, due to health reasons, then treatments should be tried for the protection of her health as well as the unborn child's. Thus leaving the child in the womb, if possible, until the age of viability, then delivering the child instead of aborting him, seeking his survival instead of letting him die. Changing the vocabulary from abort to deliver would allow for the protection of both mother and child. This is the best choice, not abortion.
