Note: PLEASE do NOT turn this into a debate on abortion, or the Catholic church. I just want a straight answer, please. I don’t want this moved to GD.
So basically, it’s like it says in the title: IF it is discovered that the fetus has died in the womb, does the Catholic church approve an abortion then? I think it has been possible that a woman hasn’t had a miscarriage yet, but simply a stillbirth waiting to happen.
Is this condoned? Since, I would imagine, that carrying a dead fetus would potentially be hazardous (sepsis, perhaps?)
