Signed. How stupid is Ireland and its archaic Catholic pro-life anti-abortion idiots?

So signed and noted. So sad that this woman had to die in the way that she did. Neither baby nor mother lived - such a shame!

Ireland already has the laws in place.
Just need to act on their vote.

Women are more valuable than a fetus.

Margery puts it exactly as I was going to put it. Also, what is the point in killing a woman if the fetus is going to die as well, anyway? Sounds like premeditated murder to me.

No one can reason with religious fanatics. They couldn't care less if women die as long as they successfully impose their retard-ideology.

Popes, Priests, and Parsons, you and your imaginary Deities had nothing to do with the procreation of any foetus.
It is purely the from copulation between a man and a woman, and in this instance not even Roman Catholic.
The only people who gave it potential life should be the ones to decide the fate of either the mother or the child. If it is a choice between the life of the mother and the POTENTIAL life of a foetus. How is it possible for a Politician, Priest, Pope, or Parson to be the the decider which one lives or dies?

One beating heart for another. Who makes this decision? God already made his; the fetus was dying.

To me, it certainly it defies all logic to have the mother AND the unborn baby die together!

What's to be lauded there?

Perhaps if the Popes and Clergy had the babies, the rules might be a little different.

Dear friends and colleagues,
The European Womenís Lobby will be joining tonight at 18.00 the Vigil for Savita and the right to abortion in Ireland at 18.00 in front of the Irish Embassy. Join us!!!!!
JOIN THE ACTION: November 21, Wednesday, International Day of Action for Legal Abortion in Ireland
The Womenís Global Network for Reproductive Rights is calling for a Vigil
on Wednesday 21st November at 6pm at the Irish Embassy
Chaussee d'Etterbeek 180, 1040 Bruxelles
An International Day of Action for Legal Abortion in Ireland following the tragic death of Savita Halappanavar will take place on Wednesday 21st of November across the world.
Savita Halappanavar made repeated requests for an abortion after presenting at University Hospital Galway on 21 October while miscarrying during the 17th week of her pregnancy. Her requests were refused and she spent several days in agonising pain and distress. The miscarriage took more than 48 hours, and when the doctors finally decided to remove the dead foetus, Savita already developed septicaemia, of which she died four days later on October 28th. The reason behind her death is Irish law that only allows abortion in cases where the doctor believes the motherís life is in danger. Savitaís doctor stated that 'as there is a foetal heartbeat we canít do anything... í
Join us to show your support for a change of abortion law in Ireland!
