Thousands rally in Ireland after
Indian woman denied abortion dies

The Times of India, by Staff

DUBLIN: Thousands of people rallied outside Ireland´s parliament on Wednesday to demand strict abortion rules be eased after a pregnant Indian woman repeatedly denied a termination died in an Irish hospital. Savita Halappanavar, 31, admitted to University Hospital Galway in the west of Ireland last month, died of septicaemia a week after miscarrying 17 weeks into her pregnancy. Her repeated requests for termination were rejected because of the presence of a foetal heartbeat, her husband told state broadcaster RTE.

Maybe if they kill a child now then Kali will bring the woman back to life.

#1 If you don´t have something intelligent to say, please don´t waste the bandwidth on this site with your bigotry.

To save one, kill the other and ultimately kill both --- I guess that´s what God intended too.

I´ll bet there is more to this story that we will never find out.

She should have gotten on a plane and whipped over here to a Planned Parenthood office. "No problem, lady, hop up on the table. No, no, we don´t want to know why. That´s not important".

Liberals always take a single incident with a negative outcome to justify policies that do multiple times the damage to culture.

Yes, in isolated cases a misdiagnosis MAY result in the death of a mother ( oops, guess they are not a mother unless she actually wants the "baby", oops , guess its not a baby unless the "mother" wants the "baby"). As opposed to the FACT that a living fetus will be snuffed millions of times if laws are liberalized.

Of course this does not matter when it is a baby near term to these people who want their abortion of convenience.

After reading posts #1 and #3, I am firmly convinced that this website is now frequented with racists and bigots. It used to be great website for thoughtful discussion. Anymore, any article that does not involve non-white prostestant males is automatically derided and suspect. Some people here hate Jews, Black, Hispanics, Females, Gays, Catholics, Mormons, .... basically anyone who does not look like them or believe in what they believe. Goodbye. Please continue your miserable isolated lives. The world is a far better place than for me to waste my time on this nonsense. I´ll find a real conservative website. I´m amazed that the moderators of Lucianne.com permit such postings.

I´d say it´s more a cautionary tale of the evils of socialized medicine. In the U.S., at least for now, she could have went to a different hospital, doctor, city, etc. and found someone willing to take her symptoms seriously.

According to the article, the Irish supreme court had ruled 20 years ago that abortions to save the life of the mother were legal. Something else seems to be going on.

We pretty much have license to write what we want to as long as it is pertinent and no foul words. If I got all huffy about someone disagreeing with me, I would not be
offended. It happens, and I do have a comment pertaining to brit medicine, there is a reason that they come here for treatment. I had friends who were there and the wife needed surgery and she was horrified at the care she received.

Nice screed from #6. Looks to me as if someone is hypersensitive and defensive about abortion. Almost as though derogatory comments about those who seek abortion hit a little to close to home.

That´s OK. Despite being a White Protestant intolerant racist bigot, I did not cease and desist from dating the woman who is now my wife when she revealed to me that she had once had an abortion.

Once of the nicest things about this site is that it was always a place where playing the RACIST! BIGOT! HATER! card has always been viewed with disdain bordering on contempt, as #6 would have noticed had she or he actually been paying attention back in those halcyon days of yore.

Hindu scriptures clearly say that taking a life where there is no other recourse is an act of non-violence. And flinching in the face of such duty sin. This is entirely a tragic affair. Unfortunately it will become more tragic as it gets used as an excuse to kill more healthy babies.

This is classic "progressive" strategy: work up faux outrage over one unfortunate case (e.g., pregnant woman dies of freak medical condition, daughter raped by a relative, etc.) to justify a million abortions per year.

There is nothing in this story that explains why this Indian woman wanted an abortion, why she miscarried, why she got septicemia afterwards, or why an abortion would have prevented her death. Do these protesters demonstrate every time a woman dies after getting a botched abortion in a Planned Parenthood clinic?

By definition a miscariage is a dead fetus...normal pregnancy does not cause sepsis...she apparently just needed a D & C to evacuate the nonliving tissue...this was a case of malpractice, not denying abortion that would have saved a life

Septicema is the cause of death 7 days later. This is a case of medical malpractice. Septicima is usually easily treated with antibiotics.

It seems they should be protesting shoddy medical practice, not abortion policy.

A read of the article will reveal that the law says she could have had the abortion to save her life but there is still something in the constitution that says no. The two were never reconciled and the doctors are left in limbo.

The protests in Ireland are against the government, the bureaucracy that could allow this to happen again.

If there was still a fetal heartbeat, then there was no miscarriage, at least not yet. The medical term would be "threatened AB" which indicates that a miscarriage is imminent or likely. There is also the medical term "missed AB" which means the fetus is dead but has not passed out of the mother´s body through the birth canal and perhaps a D&C needs to be performed to remove it and stop the bleeding. A miscarriage is called a "spontaneous AB" which means the pregnancy has ended unexpectedly and disastrously, but that no tissue has been retained in the uterus.

Without having more details about what actually happened in this instance, it is inflammatory and pointless to speculate. If there was still a fetal heartbeat, and the woman had septicemia as well, the question is, what in hell had gone on so that she ended up with speticemia? Had she tried to end the pregnancy herself? Did a back-street abortionist get his hands on her? Again, pointless to speculate without knowing more facts.

Though not a doctor, I was puzzled by the septicema 7 days after a miscarriage. Why did she not go to the doctor immediately after the miscarriage?

Just to clarify: Hindus believe in Kali. There are at this moment Hindu cults that sacrifice children to Kali. Who are we to condemn other religions? Go read the Karpuradi-Stotra. Sit back and enjoy what happens when we abandon Christ.

I agree that there´s not enough information in the article to support anything but rashjudgment, and poorly-suported innuendoes.

In defense of Ireland´s pro-life policy: Ireland has the lowest maternal mortality rate of any country in the world.

Let´s talk about the mom who regrets her children. Last week, the Daily Mail published a first-person story by Isabella Dutton, a 57 year old mother of two who declared her children to be "the biggest regret of her life." Since the Daily Mail is possibly the internet´s leading purveyor of "human interest in hating other humans" stories, it goes without saying that the article incited (and was intended to incite) a monstrous tsunami of scorn.

MUMBAI — India hanged a man on Saturday who had been convicted of involvement in the 2001 attack on Parliament that killed nine people. The hanging of Afzal Guru, a 43-year-old militant with the group Jaish-e-Mohammad, came more than a decade after the Dec. 13, 2001, suicide attack on India’s Parliament in which five gunmen opened fire, killing nine people, including security officials and a journalist. The execution drew protests from human rights groups concerned about the growing use of capital punishment in such cases.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.
