If it was legitimately a medically necessary abortion, the female body has ways of shutting that kind of thing down.XilePrincess
Doesnt mean it always will though.

That was exactly what it was. I don't watch anything from the US either but when stuff happens it's all over the internet pretty fast. I don't need to actually watch the news to know what's going on down yonder.

We should never have an abortion. The woman chose to get pregnant so she knew these types of things could occur.

I thought this might be a good thread for discussing the moral dilemmas about abortion, but no, it's just the daily hate on religious people thread. We've moved on from muslims to catholics today it seems.

Ironically posts like this prove that abortion can be a good thing.

Obviously I don't. However your post shows a large lack of knowledge.

I keep on getting the impression of what I'm reading that Ireland is still a strong Catholic and conservative country. That couldn't be further from the truth. I live in Northern Ireland and I can tell you that the majority of the Irish population is against the Catholic church on many issues - abortion, sex outside of marriage, gay rights, priests being allowed to marry and the list goes on. Ireland is no longer the country it used to be in the 1930s - it's really not that different from the USA, the UK or any other modern Western liberal democracy. As for the story itself: awful. It's criminal that Irish and Northern Irish women have to go to Britain just to get an abortion. We can only hope it'll change some day when the politicians in Ireland and Northern Ireland quit hiding their heads in the sand on this issue.

Well that's dumb. In a case where a woman's life is in danger abortion should be allowed.

is this another attempt to downplay religion? *sigh*

Condemning the pro-life position =/= condemning religion in general Although I can't say I'm fond of religions that are pro-life.

Stupid People. They could have saved the women's life, instead of allowing both of them to die. I consider it borderline murder of the women on the hospitals part, they are trained enough to see that she and the baby were going to die. Stupid.

Even if the fetus were a person, it would still not have any right to the woman's body. It belongs in her body only so long as she consents to the pregnancy. Whether she chose to get pregnant in the first place is irrelevant.

Thought the Catholic stance on abortion was that it was ok if it meant life or death?supa_badman
That is the official position, which I doubt this particular doctor cares about.

No, we're not condemning all religious people; we're specifically condemning religious people who are misogynist dipsh!ts.

You're on a forum and chose to post, you should know types of things like this could occur. And as he stated, he does not.

Typical religionist response to religion thread: >See thread mention religion >Enter thread and determine whether in favor or critical of religion >If in favor, respond with positive statement of agreement >If critical, respond with negative statement assuming generalization of all religion; initiate victim complex and get ultra-defensive if it is your religion

I hardly consider being pro life misogynist, though I do agree the pro life stance was taken too far in this case. It's a tragic yet isolated incident that some people in this thread are using to paint Ireland or Catholics as backwards. I'm certainly not Catholic myself, but these threads in which people hate on X group of people (usually muslims) get really old.

Is it? Great Britain is Wales, Scotland and England. North Ireland is part of the UK though.

I'm not sure if you call people from north Ireland British or not as they technically aren't.

I'm impressed! And yeah, in NI, you have dual nationality. So you could be Irish or British, or even both.

I drank some British tea......is the tea an inhabitant of Britain?

And here's a quote from Wiki in the Northern Ireland page....Northern Ireland was for many years the site of a violent and bitter inter-communal conflict the Troubles which was caused by divisions between nationalists, who see themselves as Irish and are predominantly Roman Catholic, and unionists, who see themselves as British and are predominantly Protestant.

Britain = England, Scotland and Wales UK = Britain + Northern Ireland So, you get the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Currently, NI is part of the UK, and so is British in the sense that it is ultimately governed by the British Parliament, follows British law, has British institutions like the NHS etc. On dual nationality: it's all about identity really. Anyone in NI is indeed a British citizen but what nationality they take is their choice, if they even want to be both. It's not that much different from the idea of Italian Americans, Irish Americans and so on. Some would say "I'm just American!" others would like to emphasise they came from a particular part of the world to settle in America.

Exactly. You could be British but live in America for example. The early settlers of the thirteen colonies considered themselves British.
