Holy shit, Ireland! You suck!

14 Nov

 

This is Savita Halappanavar, a 31 year old dentist who made the fatal mistake of having a miscarriage in Ireland.  She was 17 weeks along, when nature decided the baby wasn’t going to make it, and triggered a miscarriage.  Nature isn’t as accurate as an abortionist with a syringe loaded with sodium pentathol, however, and there was still a fetal heartbeat despite the fact that Savita was clearly miscarrying.

 

JudgyBitch is grateful she lives in a country where women who are having miscarriages are treated as MEDICAL EMERGENCIES.  This exact thing happened to me.  16 weeks into a much wanted pregnancy, I began to experience contractions and severe lower back pain.  When I started bleeding, I knew what was happening, and when I called my midwife and reported the degree of blood loss, she told me to put down the phone and call for an ambulance.  By the time the paramedics arrived, I had lost three litres of blood (I had extra due to the pregnancy, but that’s still a serious amount of blood to lose) and my blood pressure was 60/40 when I was loaded onto a stretcher.

 

At the hospital, it took several minutes to locate a vein (they had all collapsed) and the situation was so dire, freezing cold blood was poured into me.  The ER staff had no time to warm it, so I went into hypothermic shock on top of everything else.  The baby and a whole lot of other stuff was still inside me, so I was taken to the OR for an emergency D&C to prevent the possibility of infection and blood poisoning.

 

 

Had I been in Ireland, I’d be dead.  The ER staff in Ireland did NONE of the above for Savita.  They let her die, because apparently, that’s what the imaginary friend who makes the rules over there wanted.  Never mind the fact that Savita and her husband Praveen have an entirely different set of imaginary friends who think it’s really cool to help sick people and you know, LET THEM LIVE.

 

 

It’s a horrific story, and made even more horrifying by feminist media who are turning it into a story about abortion.  http://jezebel.com/5960385/woman-denied-abortion-dies-in-hospital .  What an ignorant bunch of sluts.

 

Savita did not have an ABORTION and she did not request an ABORTION.  An abortion, which every woman has the right to, is a conscious act to kill your own child.  http://judgybitch.com/2012/10/19/yes-abortion-is-killing-a-baby-do-you-really-want-to-hand-a-psycho-bitch-a-baby/

 

Savita had a miscarriage!  Her body decided ALL ON ITS OWN that her baby was not going to live.  Savita and her husband both agreed that once her body had made that decision, it was time to save her life by removing the products of conception so that Savita might live.  Neither Savita nor Praveen had any interest in killing their own child.  The baby was deemed unacceptable by Savita’s body, and nature took its course, as it is wont to do.

 

Calling Savita’s miscarriage an abortion and holding her up as some kind of martyr to the right to murder is unbelievably insensitive and awful and just horrifying.  No doubt, there ARE women who die because they have been denied an abortion, and that’s fucking tragic, too.  But Savita isn’t one of them.

 

She died because assholes in Ireland think running a country based on the rules of an imaginary friend is a good idea.  Way to go, Ireland.  How about trading in for a new imaginary friend?  You know, one who thinks love and forgiveness and kindness and compassion and acceptance is the way to go.  I hear there’s one called “Jesus”.  You might want to look into that.

 

 

Lots of love,

 

JB

    I’m not sure whether or not you’ve missed the point on abortion JB… or maybe I’ve misunderstood your argument. I know she didn’t ask for or want an abortion but it’s because the law in Ireland is so fucked up (and because the Government is dominated by the Roman Catholic Church) that doctors were afraid that removing the foetus would be seen as them carrying out an abortion and they would be prosecuted.

    I think the feminist argument is that in a country where abortion (either on demand or in certain circumstances) is allowed – as it should be – this situation would never have arisen.

    Ignorance, fear and religious fascism are what killed this young woman.

    Exactly my point, Nottingham.

    HOWEVER, requesting an abortion is a deliberate act that ends the lift of another person. Miscarriage is NOT a deliberate act, and it is completely heartless to imply that Savita WANTED her baby to die by describing what happened to her as a (refused) abortion.

    Actually I just wanted to let you know that she did in fact ask for an abortion while she was in the hospital. It was obvious she was miscarrying and wanted an abortion as she was going through so much pain but they couldn’t give her an abortion as the doctors could be put in jail under the offence against a persons act in Ireland. PS Feminists aren’t sluts because they want their fair rights….

    No idiot, receiving appropriate medical care after a miscarriage is underway is NOT requesting an abortion. It’s requesting appropriate medical care.

    And if feminists aren’t sluts because they want their fair rights, why are they sluts then? Enlighten me.

    I completely agree with you all the way. She should have gotten the medical attention she need no matter what. She didn’t and that was a failing but not of the medical practitioners but of the state. It was the political system which is still held at gun point of the church that is to blame and the church for not allowing this to happen. Its so sad…

    I never said feminists were sluts. Your did. That was your comment on feminists so why are you asking me why they are? Do you want me to teach you have to read and write, tell you a logical argument and argue it for you because you don’t have two brain cells to rub together to think intelligently (that might be a big word for you. It means smart) for yourself
