Example text

Suicide is -a very grievous sin-, and -truly a tragedy because this single act leaves so many victims: frrst the one who dies, then the dozens of others - family and friends - who are left behind, some to face years of deep pain and confusion-. Nevertheless, Ballard holds out -hope- (for both -victim- and survivors), rather than the prospect of condemnation and eternal punishment, because of uncertainty over the autonomous nature of the act. Ballard raises several circumstances that may mitigate culpability - mental illness, severe depression or emotional disturbance, a call for help, insufficient comprehension of the act's seriousness, or a chemical imbalance.

This medical indications policy has remained relatively constant since Roe, with some minor modifications: The term -Woman- has replaced the earlier term -mother-; -in jeopardy- has been substituted for -seriously endangered-; and -good- has been dropped as a modifier of -health-.
