Death of Pregnant Woman in Hospital (The Irish Times, November 2012)

Letters to the Editor


Sir,-This issue isn’t about pro life, or pro choice. This is about good medicine, proper care and laws that are needed to protect doctors and their patients.

We undermined this woman’s decision, her choices and her autonomy. We disrespected her, her baby and her family. Not one week ago, we upheld a referendum on the topic of children’s rights; what sort of sham was that? The front page of The Irish Times (November 14th) is a shameful indictment of Ireland.- Yours, etc,
