. . . that the Church makes certain allowances for abortion such as is cases of incest, rape and "when the life or health of the mother is judged by competent medical authority to be in serious jeopardy". Either you know more about it than those who wrote the Church Handbook of Instructions or they are just simply uninformed. Or perhaps we are more medically advanced than we were then and can do things to save the life of the mother that we couldn't do back then.

I did say "rare" circumstances and I still believe there are such possibilities. I'm neither a competent medical authority nor a judge in Israel, and I'm glad that I've never had to make such a decision in my life, but I'm skeptical that it's as black and white as you seem to be saying.
