I have a very tricky question that I would like to ask. I am pro-choice but also a mother and currently pregnant, so I am trying to see both sides of the debate.
My question is, do you think it is abortion if a woman has a eptopic pregnancy and the fertilzed egg must be removed so that it doesn't burst? There is no way for this pregnacy to be viable when it is in the fallopian tube. This is not my story, but it recently came up where the mother thought that she would rather die with her baby than kill it. I thought this was strange as my cousin had the egg burst in her tube and then had to have a partial hysterectomy. Both women had had their tubes tied and this is why the egg never made it to the uterus.
So, if you believe it is God's will, why have your tubes tied to begin with? There are other non-invasive birth control methods available.
