Oh, and...

...Wine Dark Sea already gave this a plug, but it is so good I will, too. Elizabeth Scalia on "Dwelling in the Possibilities of a Win-Win Situation" over at First Things:

"'Asked if the church position prefers the mother and child to die, rather than sparing the life of one of them, [James J Walters, professor of bioethics at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles] said the hope is that both would survive.'

Exactly right. The church hopes for nothing but life, lived in love, but with the clear-eyed understanding that pain is a part of the whole."

Read the whole thing--and the discussion that follows!
