For the purpose of this discussion I should like to focus your attention on the psychiatric involvement, questions, dilemmas, and opinions concerning therapeutic abortion.

Therefore, within the context of strict interpretation, the sole psychiatric indication is a high probability of suicide by the pregnant patient.
