National Demonstration - Legislate for X Now!

Saturday, December 1, 2012 2:00pm

The vigils for Savita that have sprung up across the country have been so beautiful and moving. If we want to avoid more tragedies on this island, we cannot allow this energy to subside.

We in Galway Pro-Choice are calling on pro-choice activists, feminists, and all those who believe that we need to introduce legislation to reflect the X Case, to come to Galway for a national march.

The march will assemble at the Spanish Arch at 2pm, proceed down Shop Street to Eyre Square and then turn right to Derek Nolan TD's office at the docks. After pausing there it will return to the Spanish Arch for speeches.

For more information or directions please contact Galway Pro-Choice at prochoicegalway@gmail.com or 087 706 0715

Minister James Reilly: Instigate a public inquiry into Savita Halappanavar’s death

Petition by
Feminist Society National University of Ireland, Galway
Galway, Ireland

The unecessary death of Savita Halappanavar in the University College Hospital of Galway on October 28th has raised a number of serious questions regarding her medical care. These questions are inextricably linked with the longstanding legal uncertainty regarding a woman’s right to an abortion when her life is at risk. In the absence of legislation following the X Case, doctors are left in a precarious position when faced with the difficult decisions associated with maternal care. Also, their patients face real risk, should the termination of the pregnancy be necessary to protect their lives and health.

Whilst we recognise that the HSE has sourced an independent investigator, in addition to removing the three doctors from UCHG following public criticism, this is not enough. As Savita lost her life in the care of the HSE, it is unacceptable that the only inquiry into her death be undertaken by the HSE. As noted by Praveen Halappanavar’s solicitor, Gerard O’Donnell, nothing less than a full, public and independent inquiry will suffice. Only in a public inquiry can witnesses be placed under oath and cross-examined.

Please help us put pressure on Minister of Health, Dr. James Reilly, in order to instigate a public and entirely independent inquiry.

In solidarity,

The Feminist Society and the Global Women’s Studies Programme, NUI Galway

Give the unborn human a choice and then they may come looking for you in a few years and well, (I wouldn't want to be you)

A Vigil is a religious observance on the eve of a holy day, it is not usually used to call for the obliteration of an unborn human.

Good luck with the march, nobody really cares, the other tragedies are in the bucket in an abortion clinic, but sure that won't bother the marchers.

You are an ignoramus.

A lot of people care. 2,000 turned out tonight for a Pro Choice demo at the Dail. 18 turned up for a Youth Defence demo this morning.

You're beaten and you know it.

Better hurry Ramon, before the truth comes out and all that pro-choice hysteria dissipates. Tick, tick ...

Don't make me laugh, I only want an unborn human to have a chance at life, that all, I have no religious or political connections but I have faith in humanity to look out for each other and help one another.

you have no idea what happened to Savita, ZERO !

Two Irish women who died of complications relating to pregnancy were in the news recently, abortions would not have saved them yet, it is glossed over.

I am not beaten because it is not me that is throwing the mutilated/poisoned body of an unborn human in a bucket tonight for money. That's your game mate whether you like it or not, that's what you stand for.

Enjoy your march and don't forget to hold up the images of these unborn humans in the bucket, you can never escape what you stand for.

But there's no knowing whether X Case legislation would have made any difference, at this point.

You seem to have a foetus fetish.

And you have knowledge of what happened to Savita?

The X Case legislation will be based on the Expert Groups report.

Bye Bye William binchy.
Hello X Case Legislation.

An unborn human / foetus = same thing (I do not use emotive language like unborn child/baby) there is no need to explain such violence.

NOBODY! only the Coroner knows what happened to Savita, how could anyone else know, (except pro-abortion people who would use anything to get abortion on demand into Ireland, oh wait , mental illness also)FFS.

Always picture in your head a healthy unborn human is destroyed and going into a bucket and then into the ovens, then you know what you stand for.

Give life a chance,

You come across as quite mad. In any case its not possible to have a rational debate with you.

I'm fed up with your sick obsession with foetuses in buckets. Welcome to my ignore list.

You'll notice that the whip was applied...
Now, now, no excuses!
Pro-choice rowed in behind Daly and found they had hitched their wagon to a Hallowe'en banger instead of a star.
But they never were very bright.

Why would I make excuses for something that I would never have expected to pass? I'm not totally unaware of how the Dáil and whip system work you know. My point was that it is a bit disingenuous of you to quote the numbers for and against as if they actually tell us something other than the government says no.

RTE must have thought it was worth rubbbing salt in the wounds.
X Case Bill is defeated by 101-27 in the Dáil

You'll notice that RTÉ aren't asking that anyone take a hint. Nor that the result was reached democratically. The point here being that RTÉ are not attempting to offer analysis based on the figure whilst you quite clearly were.
I thought somebody ought to state the bleedin' obvious, instead of just thinking it, as pro-choice have to do.

What do you feel is obvious? That Clare Daly's amendment is unlikely to pass if introduced a third time, so she just shouldn't bother? If we take that to it's logical extension, why should any opposition TD bother producing any sort of bill that they suspect the government will vote down?
