In some instances, the life of the mother during pregnancy is at risk. Some pregnancies come with complications and complexities. In the event that they are not terminated, the life of the mother will be in jeopardy (Williams, 2007). In such instances, doctors suggest that terminating the pregnancy for the sake of the mother would be the best option. Logic has it that performing such an operation is a viable choice especially in view of protecting everyone. The argument is that it is obvious that once the life of the mother is lost, the child will consequently not survive. There is therefore no need to lose two souls when one can be saved.
