In news that shouldn’t surprise anyone, Savita Halappanavar’s medical records show she requested an abortion several times while in hospital.
What does surprise me is that, given people apparently tried to deny this, how that kind of bullshit would fly.
I mean, by that logic, we have to ask: were her doctors literally unaware of the concept of abortion? Did they literally have no clue that a timely abortion might have been an option to end the miscarriage she was already having (because let’s not let them pretend this was about ~we want to save them both~ bullshit) and potentially stop her developing blood poisoning? What kind of spotty medical training are they providing in Galway?
Because if that’s the best line that “pro-lifers” can come up with … well, I never want to get sick in Ireland, is all I’m saying.
