Doctor Says that Abortion is Not Needed to Save a Woman’s Life

Dr. Roy S Heffernan of Tufts University said to the Congress of the American College of Surgeons:

“Anyone who performs a therapeutic abortion is either ignorant of modern methods of treating the complications of pregnancy or is unwilling to take the time to use them.”

A “therapeutic” abortion is one done due to threat to a mother’s health or life. Keep in mind that this quote is from 1971- medical advances since then make an abortion to save the mother’s life even more unnecessary.
