Comment #745521 by Peter Richardson

@ Mags Whelan, I have been struggling to discern logic in Michael O’Toole’s post. When I read your post a few minutes ago, I realised why. Michael’s posts consist of distractions, non sequiturs and false comparisons. One avoidable tragedy is not justified or excused by other tragedies or injustices. All are unacceptable. Savita should not have had to die. She was exposed to infection due to dangerously defective law inspired and procured by extreme pro life elements in 1983. A woman’s life should be sacred. As a man said in the Irish Times, his wife’s life is worth all the foetuses in the universe.

The husband of Savita Halappanavar told Prime Time tonight that he has no confidence in the HSE and wants a public, government-funded investigation into her death.

    @ Peter Richardson:
    O’Toole’s comment that you refer to was just a response to a commentator who posed the question, as to whether this tradegy would have merited the same attebtion if the victim was Irish.
    no more, no less.
    of course the truth is that the tradegy of the poor travelling woman – mother of 12 children, attracted zero attention.
    the subseuent case against the consultant, who was cleared of all charges attracted national attention.
    that’s just the basic facts of the matter.

    you are wrong to accuse me of “distractions, non sequiturs and false comparisons.”.
    all i did was respond to a question posed by someone else.

    You’re quite the troll, Michael O’Toole.
