Irish Abortion law kills woman

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

From the Irish Times: A pregnant woman was admitted to an Irish hospital reporting pain. A doctor told them the cervix was leaking and the fetus would not survive. The woman was in pain and in many countries the fetus would have been aborted to avoid risks to the mother. The doctor said they had to wait till there was no fetal heartbeat. He estimated it would be a few hours, but the heartbeat last three days. The woman died of the resulting infection. She was 31 years old.

Bloomberg reports protests in Ireland. The Irish law does not exist because some dictatorial government bullies runs the country. For Irish law-makers, relaxing abortion law has been "politically costly". In other words: Irish voters are to blame for this woman's death.
