AND IF YOU HAVE A UTERUS ONLY FORM AN OPINION ON YOUR OWN. ITS 2016, TIME TO STOP BASHING OTHER PEOPLES LIFE CHOICES. IF YOU DONT WANT AN ABORTION, DONT GET ONE. WOMEN WHO GET ABORTIONS ARE NOT MURDERERS. THEY ARE NOT SELFISH. THEY ARE NOT WRONG IN ANY WAY. KEEP YOUR BIGOTRY TO YOURSELF. PLEASE AND THANK YOU.
I live in Ireland and in Ireland it is illegal to have an abortion. The 8th Amendment in our Constitution recognises the life of the unborn to the life of the mother*. This means that if you’re raped, carrying a baby with a FFA, suicidal, dying or just carrying an unwanted pregnancy, you can’t get access to an abortion. 10-12 people a day travel over to England and 3-5 people take abortion pills from WomenOnWeb and WomenHelpWomen. People who take abortion pills can face 14 years in prison, to put that into perspective; Tom Humphries sexually abused a child and he only got 2.5 years.
The 8th Amendment has killed a woman. Today, 28th October, five years ago a woman called Savita Halappanavar dead because she couldn’t get an abortion. She died in pain due to complications of a septic miscarriage. When her and her husband asked for an abortion, she was told that Ireland was a Catholic country.
I have had enough of pro lifers acting like abortion isn’t a necessary medical procedure. Ireland’s abortion law killed Savita and I haven’t even gotten into the many other cases such as PP vs HSE, Miss Y and Miss X cases. It is 5 years later and NOTHING has changed and I’m angry. Another case like Savita could happen tomorrow! Repeal the fucking 8th and give us pro choice legislation!
