Woman's life or unborn child?

Albert Wynn with Gloria Feldt

"No woman is required to build the world by destroying herself."  - Rabbi Moshe Sofer, chief rabbi of Pressburg (now Bratislava), who lived 1763-1839).

Gloria Feldt,president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America from 1996 to 2005, wrote  The War on Choice: The Right-Wing Fight on Women's Choice and How To Fight Back (Bantam, 2004).  

On p. 110 she discusses Rabbi Sofer's decision that the life of the woman takes precedence in cases where a woman in labor cannot deliver and will die unless the unborn child is somehow removed.
