The baby killers are jumping on the case of the tragic death of Savita Halappanavar–an Indian woman who died in Ireland from blood poisoning. You can read about the case here.
This terrible death was not caused by anti-abortion legislation in Ireland. The law there allows for abortion to save the life of the mother. This woman died as a result of medical incompetence and not following the already established medical guidelines in Ireland. They could have taken procedures to save the mother’s life which were within the law and also (for those who are interested in the subtleties of moral theology) did not contravene Catholic moral teaching. For a full explanation read my friend William Oddie here. Tim Stanley also clarifies the issue here.
Rather than cynically exploiting this sad case perhaps the pro aborts should meditate on this case of the Philadelphia abortionist Philip Gosnell who not only killed and maimed women, but killed live born children AND made over a million a year doing so.
Those who are pro abortion should then ask themselves which is worse — the case of Savita Halappanavar where a woman and her baby were both lost in a place where abortion is illegal or the case of Gosnell’s abortion mill where numerous women were maimed for life, killed and countless babies were slaughtered–all of that in a country were abortion was legal.
