When anti–choice policies rule

I thought that this was an interesting blog post. Especially since I just had a discussion regarding abortion with a friend of mine. We were ranting about how abortions should not be banned.

The Words on What...

Anti–choice policies claim another victim:

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”.

Anti–woman policies killed a woman. Thank a pro–lifer today.
