Protect the Pope has avoided posting on the tragic death of Savita Halappanavar, a 31 year-old Indian woman who died October 28th of septicaemia, a severe systemic inflammatory infection, after she was admitted to hospital while miscarrying. It is difficult to imagine the grief of her husband and family, coping with the death of both mother and child.
However, evidence has emerged of the lengths the pro-abortionists in Ireland have exploited and manipulated this tragedy to force the legalisation of abortion.
LifeSite news reports:
A leaked e-mail, dated Sunday, November 11, indicates that the Irish Choice Network had been given prior knowledge of the case, days before it hit the media, though by whom is as yet uncertain. The Irish Times did not break the story publicly until November 14th, running the headline, “Woman ‘denied a termination’ dies in hospital”.
The e-mail advised ICN followers that “a major news story in relation to abortion access is going to break in the media early this coming week,” and said the news would be the basis of a prearranged protest calling for abortion outside the Dáil on Wednesday. The e-mail asked members to attend a meeting of the Irish Choice Network when they would have “more definite information around which we can make some collective decisions about how best to proceed.”
“Apologies if this is all a little mysterious, but the reason why I didn’t want to put specific details down by e-mail will probably be clear tomorrow,” it continued.
The e-mail, Uí Bhriain said, showed clearly that abortion advocates have deliberately exploited the case to start a campaign to have abortion legalised in Ireland. She said that serious questions now needed to be asked. “The media and the HSE [Health Services Executive] now needs to ask why this information seems to have been given in advance to abortion advocates,” she added.
“Was it given to them by the Irish Times, or by someone in the HSE? And if so, why?” she asked. She noted that the Irish Times story was written by Kitty Holland, daughter of leading abortion advocate Eamonn McCann.
“As we await the investigation in to what happened in Galway hospital, we need to know why this private patient information was given to campaigners for legalised abortion in Ireland,” she said.
Protect the Pope comment: It is obvious that members of Enda Kenny’s government, the HSE and sections of the media are determined to legalise abortion. The exploitation of Savita’s death to attain this goal reveals in all its ugliness the ruthlessness of the pro-abortion propaganda machine. Images of Irish pro-abortionists protesting outside the Dail on the day the media broke the news of Savita’s death was a pre-arranged plan to manipulate public opinion in Ireland before the facts of her death had been determined.
Even Ireland’s Minister for Health, James Reilly, who is not pro-life, has raised questions about the exploitation of this tragic case, saying he does not believe the claims that the doctors told Mr. Halappanavar that abortion was not available because Ireland is a Catholic country. He added that no decisions can be made until a medical investigation is completed.
