I assume this was Paul's private medical practice, so there must've been an agreement with the woman that he was not willing to save their lives if something were to go wrong.

That's not it at all. He's said he's never had or seen a case where it was necessary to abort the child in order to save the mother's life. Obviously he would be willing to save the move, but he would also have a responsibility to save the child. He would never, as a doctor and a person, want to lose either one of his patients. I'm sure, though, that if it came to having to abort the child in order to save the mother he would do it. Luckily he never was put in such a horrible situation.

Basically what he's saying is that situation is so uncommon that it's not something that really needs to be a dividing factor like what it did to the Constitution Party.
