This Hindu woman died after her pregnancy became life-threatening. She requested and was refused an abortion at an Irish hospital, due to that country’s strict anti-abortion laws. The husband believes his wife would still be alive today if the abortion had been allowed to go forward.
How would you respond to a challenge from a fellow Christian who said this incident illustrates that abortion may be “ok” in certain circumstances?
I disagree, but this case in point illustrates how theological doctrine can become very practical.
