Indian woman suffering a miscarriage denied abortion in Ireland dies

On October 31st 31 year old Savita Halappanavar, 17 weeks pregnant, was hospitalized with severe pain. Doctors determined whe was having a miscarriage. Over the course of three days, the baby slowly died. She asked if they could not save the baby if they could terminate the pregnancy. They said as long as there was a fetal heartbeat there was nothing they could do. Savita Halappanavar died from blood poisoning.

1. If repubs have their way!!!

Anyone that thinks that this could never happen in our country is delusional!!

All it would take is for the right repub's in the right positions of power and it would be a done deal!!

I mean we already have the law in utah that states if you miscarry and someone says it was your fault you can be charged!!!

I feel very strongly about this because I was in the same position.And I would have died if the fetus had not been removed. Thankfully SO FAR in this country it is legal...but for how long???

2. Have Priests thrown a party yet

Looks like their kind of occasion, they've managed to kill another daughter of Eve.

3. Maybe this is the case that will allow the civil government

to tell the church to fuck off and die, that therapeutic abortion must be legal.

As it is, why the hell didn't they move her across to the UK?

This is just so unnecessary and it's what all those old men in dresses want for all women, preventable death from pregnancy. It's what we get for being such temptresses.
