Anything worth talking about, is worth blogging about

Anti–choice policies claim another victim:

Savita Halappanavar (31), a dentist, presented with back pain at the hospital on October 21st, was found to be miscarrying, and died of septicaemia a week later.

Her husband, Praveen Halappanavar (34), an engineer at Boston Scientific in Galway, says she asked several times over a three-day period that the pregnancy be terminated. He says that, having been told she was miscarrying, and after one day in severe pain, Ms Halappanavar asked for a medical termination.

This was refused, he says, because the foetal heartbeat was still present and they were told, “this is a Catholic country”.

Anti–woman policies killed a woman. Thank a pro–lifer today.

  1. It’s despicable how little value (if any) is placed on women’s lives.

  2. This story made me ill. They are trying to revive the whole “heartbeat bill” in Ohio again. It’s unlikely to be found constitutional, but in the off-chance it was, can you imagine how many women could meet this fate? Sick.

    • “It’s unlikely to be found constitutional,…”

      The fact that Romney would likely have appointed judges that would have upheld it is one reason to be glad he lost and Obama won.

      “… can you imagine how many women could meet this fate? Sick.”

      A single woman dying this way is too many.

  3. Reblogged this on V.V. Vaymin and commented:
    I thought that this was an interesting blog post. Especially since I just had a discussion regarding abortion with a friend of mine. We were ranting about how abortions should not be banned.
