They care so much for the unborn, they're completely willing to sacrifice the vessel that carries the child. Angry

Woman In Ireland Dies After Being Denied an Abortion During a Miscarriage

By Dashiell Bennett | The Atlantic Wire – 4 hrs ago

Women's rights and health activists are outraged after reports that a pregnant woman in Ireland died after she was denied an abortion that might have saved her life. Savita Halappanavar was 17 weeks pregnant when she showed up at a hospital in Galway last month, complaining of back pain. Doctors quickly determined that she was having a miscarriage and chose to let it run its course. After spending a full day in "severe pain" and understanding that the baby could not be saved, Halappanavar asked for the pregnancy to be terminated. The hospital refused, reportedly telling the couple that "this is a Catholic country" and there was nothing it could do as long a heartbeat could be detected.

It was another two and half days before the heartbeat stopped and the fetus was removed, but by then the damage had been done. Halappanavar had developed septicemia and E. coli infections. She spent another four days in intensive care and died a week after entering the hospital.

Abortion is completely illegal in Ireland, but can technically be allowed if "there is a real and substantial risk to the life (as distinct from the health) of the mother." In other words, it's not enough for the mother to be in pain or at risk of complications. They have to reasonably believe that she will die without it. Now an investigation is underway as to whether the hospital acted properly and Halappanavar's family is considering legal action. She and her husband are Hindus from India, but both lived and worked in Ireland.

There are also already calls being made for the Republic of Ireland to back off what is are some of the strictest anti-abortion rules in the world. Just days before Halappanavar's ordeal, the first legitimate women's health clinic to offer abortions opened across the border in Northern Ireland, which operates under different laws, but faces an equally strident pro-life opposition. (Abortion has been legal in the UK since the 1960s, but Northern Ireland has never enacted the law that allows it.) The tough rules lead as many 4,000 women to leave the country in search of abortions each year.

One writer called the treatment of Halappanavar "cruelty disguised as piety, cowardice misrepresented as principle," saying that even if she hadn't died, the pain alone should have justified the procedure. Arguments over just these kinds of abortion exemptions—and the often foolish comments made by some conservatives—were part of a major debate the helped swing several key election in the U.S. this year.

UPDATE, EVERYONE! The outrage has been overwhelming and Irishmen and Irishwomen are taking it to the streets!

Quote

Tonight, right now, over two thousand infuriated Irishmen and Women have gathered outside the Dáil in protest over the death of Savita Halappanavar, who died of septicaemia in Galway University Hospital after she had a miscarriage. They protest over our governements failure to legislate for the X Case.

This was a protest organised over a matter of hours. The response has been overwhelming.

Ireland needs a change. All these people are there to voice this chance.

Hmmm...just saw this on twitter, and this is what one of  my followers is saying

Sarah Carroll: The greatest thing we can do to honour #Savita’s life is to insist on obstetric excellence- that is what saves women's lives

@AlbredaAylese It's not actually respect for life that drives that movement

@AlbredaAylese I hate even letting them claim to be pro-life. MS, US state with highest "pro-life" activism has worst infant mortality rate

" data-mentions="sairaforreal">

@sairaforreal Agree that terms matter, this was not an abortion of healthy pregnancy. Still denied D&C because of pro-life paradigm.

Details
" data-mentions="xoxoloveeliz">

@xoxoloveeliz out of sheer hatred for women and our right to autonomy

Details
" data-mentions="xoxoloveeliz">

@xoxoloveeliz I agree. The point I'm trying to make is that the anti-abortion rhetoric is so out-of-control it's denying non-abortion care

Details
" data-mentions="sairaforreal TheRotund">

@sairaforreal @TheRotund this is a human rights issue that pro-life rhetoric is killing women and allowing the denial of standard care.

Details
" data-mentions="sairaforreal TheRotund">

@sairaforreal @TheRotund thank you. I've been trying to make that point all morning. the fact that this is even a pro-choice issue is bs.

Details

So to then hear someone call the procedure an "abortion" is needlessly cruel as well as inaccurate

Details
">

You've already started the grieving process, started to accept that the potential within you will never become a child

Details
">

A therapeutic D&C is NOT an abortion. By the time you are at the point where you are getting one, you already know your fetus is nonviable

Details
">

Part of why the anti-choice anti-woman camp is winning political battles is b/c we keep ceding the framing of issues to them

Details
">

The correct term is therapeutic dilation and curettage

Details
">

She had already started miscarrying. It's disingenuous 'pro-life' bullsh*t to refer to it as an "abortion."

Can we please stop referring to the procedure the woman in Ireland was denied as an abortion? Please?
