Why look, another instance where an abortion could save the life of a mother. Could have saved.

Woman 'denied a termination' dies in hospital - The Irish Times - Wed, Nov 14, 2012

Just completely tragic. And aggravating. That poor women should not have died.

Solid proof that a heartbeat doesn't always mean all is well.

May she rest in peace and Ireland finally stops being influenced by the Catholic church.

The thing that shocks me the most about the way some people on the right react to stories like this is that they seem to place the "life" of an unformed embryo above that of the, y'know, MOTHER.

My will, worded so that it sounds vaguely like God's will as read by fundies.

This was refused, he says, because the foetal heartbeat was still present and they were told, “this is a Catholic country”.
Boy, it's really interesting to see how willing the Catholic Church is to stick to their religious beliefs and their concern for children when inside the woman's body!

That is horrifying. Why do we still think, in this day and age, that religious law must trump someone's health concerns?

My condolances to her family on their tragic loss.

Apparently the law is that it can be performed to save the life of the mother, but no one ever got around to defining what those instances might be, so doctors may fear doing it at all.

Women who attempted get abortions but were denied are three times as likely to fall into poverty than those whose efforts were not blocked, a recent study conducted by researchers at University of California San Francisco found.
UCSF's Bixby Center on Global Reproductive Health examined 3,000 interviews conducted with over 1,000 women from across the United States who had either received abortions or were turned away because their pregnancies had already passed the clinic's gestational limit. The study aimed to determine the effects carrying an unwanted pregnancy to term had on women's mental, physical and socio-economic health.
Researchers found that a year after seeking an abortion, more than three-quarters of the women turned away were on public assistance and 67 percent were below the poverty line. Fewer than half of those turned away held a full time job.
Figures dropped significantly for the women who received abortions.
"When a woman is denied the abortion she wants, she is statistically more likely to wind up unemployed, on public assistance, and below the poverty line," lead researcher Dr. Diana Greene Foster explained to io9. "Another conclusion we could draw is that denying women abortions places more burden on the state because of these new mothers' increased reliance on public assistance programs."
Research also revealed that one of the main reasons women sought abortions in the first place was monetary: 45 percent were on some form of public assistance and two-thirds had incomes below the federal poverty line.
Of the women who were unable to get abortions, only eleven percent had put their children up for adoption by a year following the birth.

The study found no correlation between the desire to seek an abortion and drug use, although it did uncover a strong link between a willingness for women to say in an abusive relationship and being denied abortion access. While turnaways were more likely to remain in relationships with the child's father, they were also more likely to have experienced domestic abuse in the past six months and were less likely to feel positively about their relationship.
Abortion Poverty Study Finds Link Between Lack Of Access And Income

Has anyone read "Freakanomics"? It claims that because of the passing of Roe v. Wade, the crime rate in this country has gone down because people aren't being born and raised in situations that could lead to criminal activity (ie: poverty, single mothers working all day).

If only she had gotten raped (legitimately, of course) she would still be alive today.

An assault on working families has plunged more children into poverty by the Republican legislature’s decisions to slash funding for the Earned Income Tax Credit and the child-care subsidy, which both helped low-income families.
Keep it classy, GOP .

And speaking of dumbass GOP members, anyone else heard about this story of "pro-life" Congressman DesJarlais in recent times?

Tennessee GOP congressman’s ex-wife had 2 abortions - BostonHerald.com

Color me completely unsurprised-I knew we'd hear stories like this from the more militant, controlling "pro-lifers" out there eventually.

The bit about the gun is pretty fucking disturbing, too. Especially since he handily won another term. Feel good knowing you have a deeply unstable, hypocritical douchebag running your area, Tennessee citizens?
