Woman 'Refused' Abortion In Ireland Dies

38 posts in this topic

By killing the mother they also killed her child. One was never born and the other was alive and died due to a religious decision. .

When 2 people hang onto a rope at the edge of a cliff, you got to chose to save one

2 lives wasted when one could have been saved, its about time religeon caught up with modern times,as it stands its a disgrace.Come you guys Petition your Religeous Leader.

Please read the article again.. The woman was already miscarrying, the baby could not be saved EVEN if the woman was saved... To sum that up - The baby would have died regardless.. That's what happens when a woman miscarries

Whenever a absurd, unfair, idiotic, chance accident occur that there is no rhyme or reason to, and is totally pointless, you hear: -"God works in mysterious ways"

Or if a plane-crash happens and 450 people were burned alive, and one person survived, you hear: -"It is Gods miracle".

Well, he didn't have a thought for those 450 who burned now, did he?.

Many people see it (like myself) as the termination of human life, no matter at what time the abortiom is carried out. It could be just weeks into the pregnancy, or near the end. But many people are against it because their religion says it's murder as well.

There seems some gray area for many in abortion (I also feel these are good exceptions to the rule of 'no abortions'); if the mother's life is at stake, cases of incest or rape, or genetic deformities. In this case, the mother's life was at risk, an abortion of her child probably would have saved her life.

Not just religious people A lot of atheists/secular humanists do not accept the arbitrary right of a woman to abort a child without good reason, based on humanist ethics values and moralities,

But in this case the doctors made a mistake, probably because of both their own and the states prejudices/ legal framework in the matter. On the other hand, hindsight is a wonderful thing. Did the doctors know the baby was dieing anyway, and if so would that have made a difference? I assume even Irish law allows for an abortion where the mothers life is in serious danger.

Yes, the doctors knew the fetus would not make it and told her so three days before the fetal heartbeat stopped. The really ridiculous thing is they would not leave a women in active labor for three days with a dilated cervix because the risk of infection is so great. In the old days midwives had a saying that you never let the sun set twice on a laboring woman or you will lose both mother and child.

There are some things I don't understand about this incident. Was the woman an Irish citizen? Was her husband there? Is it possible that she could have been transported to another hospital? Could the police have been called to escort her away?

To add, the doctor knew that with the woman suffering with septicaemia, there was a fatal chance she would have died, but he still decided not to abort

The doctor went against the Irish laws on abortion.. .For their law states - Abortion in the Republic of Ireland is illegal unless it occurs as the result of a medical intervention performed to save the life of the mother. http://en.wikipedia....blic_of_Ireland

So this could be why so many are wanting the doctor tried for medical manslaughter .. others are crying out - Murder..

What I don't understand is.. Why didn't her husband get her rushed over the Irish boarder to the north.. Newry is just over the boarder... Daisy Hill ( Newry hospital ) would have done it for her... Maybe he didn't know ? It's a pity ...

Hi BM,

I read somewhere that she was fully dilated and losing amniotic fluid. The baby was miscarrying, so therefore why didn't they deliver the baby! Which takes away any problem of the 'abortion' issue. I know what a Catholic Priest would of said if one had been present, if there was no hope for the baby (which there wasn't) save the mother. I know this for a fact because I have been through a similar situation.

I think it was because they detected a fetal heartbeat, they refused to do it

I think it was criminal to let this mum die when the baby had no chance, they must of known the baby would die and therefore could of performed an emergency section to save the mother and get round the issue of 'abortion'. She should of been saved and I hope some heads roll for this. I am pro-life and I am against abortion except in serious health issues for the mum. It's just so sad :cry:

I agree with you, as do so many outraged catholics ..The Irish law is against abortion UNLESS the mothers life is in danger..( I posted this info previously ) .. The doctor did not obey the law... I think heads will soon roll..
