Hospitals only performed one abortion for medical indications

Dr. Arthur O’Leary writes about “medical indications” for abortions. This is a term relating to abortions that must be done to preserve a woman’s life or health.:

“In past years I was privileged to have [delivered] countless babies. My father did many before me. Neither of us ever encountered a “medical indication” for abortion. In fact, before 1973 it was medically legal to abort a [pregnant] mother as a life-saving procedure. Records indicate that the total number of abortions done at St. Luke and Cornwall hospitals prior to 1973 was one.”
