Canadian doctor: No medical reasons for abortion

Edward Kryn, MD, wrote a letter to Alliance for Life Ontario, November 3, 1995 on whether abortion is ever needed to save a mother’s life

“[I] would like to confirm in writing that today with the advanced state of medicine in Canada, there does not exist a medical reason for an abortion. One must understand that some treatments rarely undertaken to save the life of the mother have the unintentional effect of causing the child in the uterus to die, but these circumstances do not constitute an abortion – medically or morally.”

Quoted in “ABORTION A Briefing Book For Canadian Legislators” Campaign Life Coalition NATIONAL PUBLIC AFFAIRS OFFICE July 2002
