I find it hard to believe he performed an abortion to save a mother's life. Pro-life doctors in Ireland have always insisted that it is never necessary to abort to save a mother's life and Dr McGuiness in part of that group.It seems a little unfair to quote him from 17 years ago as any views he holds may well have substantially changed since then. Unfortunately the article is behind a paywall so on what grounds did he challenge it? Often things can be challenged on procedural grounds rather than points of principle.
Still the fact that he performed an abortion when he deemed it medically necessary is lost on you, so much for the 'chilling effect'
