My friend in the UK was pregnant for 25 weeks when she learned that the baby she was carrying was deformed and had tumors all over his body. Doctors advised to end the pregnancy but I remember that she had to deliver it. They didn’t perform the abortion. It was very traumatic for both parents. Wouldn’t , in cases like this, abortion be less traumatic?

This is a "leading question". Using language like "tear him limb from limb" leads people to answer the question the way you want them to and yields invalid results. That said, if the doctors know the child can't live outside the womb (perhaps because it's vital organs are developing outside it's body) it may be best to abort, to spare the child suffering. Ideally the doctors would make this diagnosis before the 3rd trimester though. I agree with you that 3rd trimester abortions should never occur, and I consider myself pro life. But I think there are situations where doctors can determine that the child cannot survive birth, and abortion may be justifiable. It is quite a gray area though

💠 4JC asked:
If a baby in 3rd trimester has a condition that will cause it to die soon after birth, do you think it’s more compassionate to tear the baby limb by limb & crush it’s skull, or to allow him or her to born & comforted in his mother’s arms as he dies?
