The tragic death of Savita Halappanavar was very effectively exploited to begin the process of the introduction of abortion into Ireland.

The tragic death of Savita Halappanavar was very effectively exploited to begin the process of the introduction of abortion into Ireland.

The pro-abortion forces and the liberal media in Ireland know something about timing and use it to deadly effect. We saw for example the barefaced exploitation of the Savita Halappanavar case which was used very effectively to begin the process of the introduction of abortion in Ireland and now we see what seems to be the ‘coup de grace’, timed to coincide with the final debates in the Senate before it is voted into law. The Media are reporting on the sad case of a woman, a foreign national living in Dublin, who died from ‘extensive internal blood loss’ following an abortion in a Marie Stopes clinic in London in January 2012.

Whilst the reports are carefully worded the obvious conclusion that abortion is dangerous for women as well as being deadly for babies is not even considered and neither is the question of why this report was not presented in January 2012 but saved for the week in which the final vote is to be taken in the Senate.

Judging by the headline of the article in which a non-national living and studying in Ireland is morphed into ‘A woman FROM Ireland’ one can be forgiven for cynically concluding that this story is already in the process of becoming yet another ’cause celebre’ for the pro-choice movement.

The carefully crafted story rather than focusing on the real issues implies that the problem arose from the fact that the woman could not obtain an abortion in Ireland.

Interestingly an article by John Waters appears this week in the Irish Catholic Newspaper in which he says of Ireland’s pro-abortion media;

“For one thing, the ‘debates’ are almost invariably hosted by ‘liberal’ journalists, and, for another, the skewed dynamics of the ‘debates’ ensure that these are really dramas in which traditionalist forces are pitted against liberals in a manner that ensures only the liberal argument can win.”

The tragic death of Savita Halappanavar was very effectively exploited to begin the process of the introduction of abortion into Ireland.
