Montreal Cardinal: "I am against abortion, but I can understand that in certain cases, there is almost no other choice than to practice it."

This is a snippet from LifeSite News

"In the interview Cardinal Turcotte, as quoted by Le Devoir, compared abortion to killing in self-defense, effectively equating the unborn child with a violent aggressor. "Personally, I am against murder," he said, "but can understand that sometimes, when someone is being attacked, they need to kill someone in self-defense. I am against abortion, but I can understand that in certain cases, there is almost no other choice than to practice it."

No respected Cardinal there are no cases in which abortion can be practiced, not even if the life of the mother is at risk. If you dobt this respected Cardinal, please refer to Saint Gianna Molla  

A few days before the child was due, although trusting as always in Providence, she was ready to give her life in order to save that of her child: “If you must decided between me and the child, do not hesitate: choose the child - I insist on it. Save him”. On the morning of April 21, 1962, Gianna Emanuela was born. Despite all efforts and treatments to save both of them, on the morning of April 28, amid unspeakable pain and after repeated exclamations of “Jesus, I love you. Jesus, I love you», the mother died. She was 39 years old. Her funeral was an occasion of profound grief, faith and prayer. The Servant of God lies in the cemetery of Mesero (4 km from Magenta).

Sadly the reporter was not catholic but if I was there i would ask him Cardinal what would those cases be. and after he awnsered that i would ask him and what if the line was moved back just a little more would we not be back to the situation today.
remember that the Canadian Bishops did reject the Humane Vite when it came out openly rejected it.
Lets pray for this Cardinal after all cardinals elect the pope or become popes
