Opposition to abortion is not a religious matter, I’m atheist and incredibly proud of our defense of the unborn. It’s a cheap stunt. People before profit really are such a pathetic party.

    @Dean Burroughs: Were you incredibly proud of our defense of the unborn when Savita Halappanavar died due to be denied an abortion?

    @Dean Burroughs: the 8th Amendment is Roman Catholic dogma.

    @Dean Burroughs: If your partner got pregnant and her life was at risk, unless she had a termination.Would you protect that “unborn” above her? If your answer is no,why ?

    @Niamh Kenneally: That was a case of medical negligence. Three independent investigations have come to this conclusion. According to HIQA, the poor woman didn’t even get a basic level of care, they were so negligent.

    She didn’t die due to being denied an abortion. Read the report.
    She died because of a series of failings as is happening frequently in our poor health service.

    @Emma Murphy: an abortion would have saved the life of Savita, by enabling the cervix to be closed and thereby preventing the entrance of the bacteria which caused the sepsis.

    Delayed administration of sufficient iv antibiotics was a factor but the waiting for the foetal heart beat to expire was fatal for Savita.

    Sadly, it was not legally possible to perform the abortion of the unviable foetus and as a result Savita died of sepsis.

    @Emma Murphy: If there had been no confusion over what they were allowed do under law for her, once they knew the fetus would die, then she would not have died. Our fu**ed-up laws are what killed her.

    @Tony Daly: Exactly, and I find it really gross that people falling over themselves to declare their support of unborn babies are so quick to dismiss the awful death of a woman caused directly by the laws they want in place.
    Almost like the woman’s life is never as important.

    @Niamh Kenneally: the interest of a non sentient foetus are regarded as far more valuable than the life of a pregnant woman with all of her connections, emotions, memories, aspirations, loves, and place in life. It is so strange.

    The life of one pregnant woman is more valuable and catly important than that of a billion foetuses. Indeed, there is no valid basis of comparison.
