I had another blog post about the new World War Z movie and how much I hate Brad Pitt ready to go up. Then I heard about Savita.
Her family said she asked several times for her pregnancy to be terminated because she had severe back pain and was miscarrying.Her husband told the BBC the termination was refused because there was a foetal heartbeat.
Savita died on October 28, 2012.
This is what happens when your country makes laws based on a 1,500 year old holy book. People who do not ascribe to that book's teachings get their rights trampled on. This woman was a happy person, excited to become a mother. She and her husband moved to Ireland because of the low infant and mother mortality rate.
The Irish government and the Catholic Church are responsible for this woman's death.
