+  Don't exploit death of Italian woman to push abortion, ethicist says

  • Description: "A tragic death of a mother in Italy after late-term pregnancy complications and miscarriage is being pinned on the doctor’s refusal to perform a late-term abortion, despite appearances that the mother died of complications of the miscarriage. The case is complex, John F. Brehany, PhD, an ethicist for the National Catholic Bioethics Center, told EWTN News in a statement. “At a minimum, there seems to be a profound disagreement about what was said between the physician and the hospital, and the patient and her family."
