    Seems she was having a miscarriage, but it was incomplete. She was in great pain, and after 24 hours she begged doctors for an abortion, to end the pregnancy as quick as possible. As the fetus still had a heartbeat, she was denied the abortion.
    Finally, the fetus died, and the woman developed blood poisoning and died a week later:

    This was in Ireland, where abortion is illegal, so the doctors claimed they couldn't do anything because the heart was still beating, but they should have given her something to help nature along, to end her suffering.

    The left never posts stories about: Baby lives, family happy.

    Nothing but fear mongering and hate.

    Ya cause after all one should just ignore the law any time they feel like it, RIGHT? So I assume you condemn doctors that don't administer lethal drugs to their terminal patients? How about the people that just want to commit suicide, damn that doctor for saving them and not helping them, RIGHT?

    Further this was Ireland, I don't give a rats ass what they do as long as it doesn't effect this Country.

    Of course people shouldn't violate the law, but if there was a choice between saving a life, and breaking the law, I would think the doctors would break the law!

    Yes, when it's between what's morally right, and the law, you should always do what's moral.


    If I'm dying in a hospital, surrounded by doctors, they have a moral obligation to help me. Not to tell me the law says I have to die.

    That can't be true. Aren't Republicans saying no one dies from childbirth anymore?

    ^^What does that mean exactly if the baby still was alive and had a heartbeat?

    If the people of Ireland do not like the law and they want abortion legal than they should do what needs to be done to change the law if it is the will of the people.

    This fetus apparently should have been removed by c-section if vaginal delivery was not possible. If the fetus was substainable then the hospital staff could have worked to save both baby and mother. There seems to be some holes in this story.
