View Full Version : Husband wants answers over wife whose death sparked abortion debate

Seventeen weeks into her pregnancy Savita began suffering severe back pain, and sought medical help.

Doctors at the Galway University Hospital told her she was miscarrying and that her baby would likely die.
Savita's husband says his wife, who was in extreme pain, asked for a termination, but was told that Ireland is a Catholic country and that the procedure could not be carried out while the fetus was alive.

Three days after the request for a termination was made, the fetus died and was removed.
Four days later, Savita was dead from a blood infection.


This is what happens when you mix science with religion and insist on applying religion instead of science.

Yeah, the media does this really well. Wait until the enquiry is over.

"...after taking his wife's body back home to India for cremation."

Was there an autopsy, one would hope??

Hans, this is an ugly situation, and indeed it certainly appears that an abortion might have been the correction.

I hope you will be honest enough to follow this up.
