This is why pro-abortion legislation is so crucial to the health and safety of women all over the world.
Two investigations are under way into the death of a woman who was 17 weeks pregnant, at University Hospital Galway last month.
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”.
She spent a further 2½ days “in agony” until the foetal heartbeat stopped.
Paul Ryan keeps opening his mouth about things, and this time he’s letting us know that rape is another form of conception. To the question of “Should it be legal for a woman to get an abortion after a rape?” Ryan had this to say:
I’m very proud of my pro-life record, and I’ve always adopted the idea that the method of conception doesn’t change the definition of life.
