Ireland is to legalize some abortions after the death of a pregnant woman who was refused a termination.

It was announced yesterday that the Dublin government would legislate to decriminalize abortion if the mother’s life was at risk.

Reforms are expected to include the threat of suicide as a ground for abortion, but may not extend to pregnancies resulting from rape or incest.

The country has the strictest abortion laws in Europe, and any move to change them is expected to face strong opposition from the Catholic Church. …

This is how one sad suicide becomes one million murdered unborn babies.

“This is how one sad suicide becomes one million murdered unborn babies.”

Exactly.

But personally I don’t think that just because one female kills herself that Ireland would then decide to allow others to kill their own children.

Seems to me they wanted to open that door all along and see this as a convenient excuse to do so.

I believe God will soon be flushing that toilet and the pipe leads to hell's sewer.

Ahh, you are probably right. It is likely just another case of the infamous political game “Never let a good tragedy go to waste.” Perhaps there is a special place in hell just for horrible politicians.

The comments are interesting. Some claim that this law does not open the door to abortion on demand. We shall see, obviously, but the problem is the veracity of the abortion-seeker. How can any doctor possibly know whether the threat is real or merely an excuse?

This 'news' story and many more similar is nothing more than leftist wishful thinking propaganda. The key phrase to be noted when read is: "Reforms are expected to include"

Enda Kenny is Europe’s man; he is not going to go against the leftist agenda out of there.

Do abortion-seekers and veracity really go hand in hand . . . ?

Like our country, the government there is acting contrary to the will of the people.

Truly a shame; they might as well be part of the UK at this point...

This IS abortion on demand. And this is how they started in the US. If a pregnancy threatened the life of the mother, an abortion was legal-—and they used the suicide “threat” as a way of getting around abortion laws by saying that the treat did imperil the mother’s life.

Well, one could leave the doctors the option to take the statements of the poor dears at face value and institutionalize them for their own protection for a couple of years...until they can be sure the crisis has passed...

They learned nothing from California where the number of abortions now exceeds the number of live births, thanks to a clause like that in their abortion bill enacted BEFORE Roe v. Wade.

IDIOTS!

Since we are talking the UK, here, a study conducted in Wales found that women who get abortions are 225 times more likely to commit suicide than women who go ahead and have their baby.

225 times more likely!!!!!

Think about it: They want women who are suicidal to get abortions which are known to increases suicidal tendencies to the Nth degree!?!

It's like throwing gasoline on a fire!

Cheers!

Well, under an abortion-on-demand system like ours, yes. There’s currently no need for a woman to lie when it’s perfectly acceptable to abort for convenience.
