ADIOS. THE CATHOLIC CHURCH TEACHES THAT A WOMEN CANNOT BE SAVED IN SUCH CIRCUMSTANCES AND THE FUNDIES SUPPORT THAT IDEA TOO.
Addendum - I was raised Catholic and spent 16 1/2 years in the Catholic school system. The Catholic Church remains firm that the life of the child always comes first and the mother's life MUST ALWAYS BE SACRIFICED.
There was a movie called "The Cardinal" where the main character played by Tom Tyrone was told that his sister would die due to her pregnancy. In the movie HE MADE THE DECISION to let her die. She NEVER WAS GIVEN THE CHOICE.
The church fears women so much that they would rather give up a potential future female womb for the possibility of another male.
If they knew the baby were another female, they'd look the other way, and wouldn't care at all. But if there's a chance they'll get another male, they'll take that chance, even if it means losing a future child bearer.

homosexuality and many do on medical issues as well. On the other hand many ignore the church on war, torture, poverty, 3rd world debt and the death penalty. One could argue why the US catholic church focuses so heavily on a small band of issues American Catholics tend to ignore and not the others...
