The Church permits surgical

The Church permits surgical procedures that can unintentionally result in the death of the fetus, but direct abortions are never permitted. For example, surgery done on a woman experiencing an ectopic pregnancy is permitted, even though it may very well kill the fetus, because the intention is to save the life of the mother and the death of the fetus is the indirect consequence of the procedure. It's called the principle of double effect. Regardless, there are no medical conditions where an abortion is necessary and the Good Doctor himself has said so.
