I am dealing with a serious moral dilema; there is a young women who is severely depressed and is pregnant with her 4th conception. She has had two abortions and has two children for which she is unable to care for and were removed from her at birth. She has an alcoholic boyfrind who is currently in jail for threatening his father while in an alcoholic rage, going after him with a knife. This women does not have the wherewithall to use birth control nor do her several boyfriends. This baby will be subjected to some potentially life threatening challenges, not the least of which could be abandonment, starvation, and child abuse at the hands of the boyfriend/father.
Talking to someone like this about chastity would be pointless. The only time she feels loved is when she's sexually engaged. Does the Catholic Church realize that saving these babies who won't be given up for adoption because there are not many minority adoptive families around and because the boyfrined won't give up parental rights is subjcting them to possibly neglect, starvation, abuse, and even death? Would it not be the lesser of two evils to give this women a depoprovera injection every 3 months to prevent her from conceiving additional babies which may be aborted ot abused? I am very conflicted about this. Could you shed some light on this and offer suggestions about how to deal with these situations? They come up all too often. Thank you so much for your time.
