    It's highlighting some ugly facts, but I want to know them. Women's rights still need protection, and this points out the consequences for women of men making decisions over women's bodies.

    Unfortunately, the men's decision for Savita caused her death. It was medical murder of the mother and her child. We women should protest, and protest strongly.

      physicians, but I do know that there are many female physicians and healthcare providers who have the same agenda.  I will talk about that more on Wednesday.

        One of them was at my small town hospital for a while.  I know it's got a few adamantly pro-choicers in senior positions.  I don't know if that had anything to do with the fact she's gone but she is.

        How come whenever I need a new gyno the only one who are taking new patients are anti-abortion?

      The child was already dying due to the miscarriage.  There was no saving the fetus.

      Hair-splitting, I suppose, but only the truth is going to do any good in this situation.
