Abortion (81360-C2-¶161.J)

Amend ¶161.J as follows:
  
J) Abortion-The beginning... But we are equally bound to respect the sacredness of  the life and well-being of the mother, for whom devastating damage may result from an unacceptable  a life threatening pregnancy. In continuity...

Rationale

The sentence in question introduces inconsistency into our statement on abortion.  ¶161J expresses that we do not affirm abortion as an acceptable means of birth control, while the word unacceptable means anything not wanted, not welcome or not acceptable, which could mislead someone to use abortion as birth control.
