Letter to Editor 11/11/2018

The Oireachtas Health committee held discussions last week with regard to 180 amendments to the abortion Bill.

These amendments were tabled from both pro-abortion and pro-life points of view.

The voting results for some of these amendments are as follows;

1. Full and proper Conscientious rights to medical personnel which would not oblige them to facilitate an abortion..... REJECTED

2. In the wake of the Tuam babies, that there should be the option for the 'dignified disposal of' remains when surgically aborted and ensure they are not discarded like clinical waste...REJECTED

3. Pain capable pre born infants over 20 weeks and up to full term (which is permitted in legislation) would be administered pain-relief prior to being killed....REJECTED

4. Late term abortions (past viability of around 6 months and beyond) where the infant survives the abortion, would be provided with medical care and not left to die.....REJECTED (so much for Minister Harris' promise of 'early delivery with a full medical team on hand' during the referendum)

5. Mothers could be offered the possibility of seeing their ultrasound image and listen to her foetal heartbeat....... REJECTED

6. Provision of information about “reversing the effects of abortion-inducing drugs”......REJECTED

7. Provision of alternatives to abortion information with availability of public/private agencies, willing to assist the woman /child during and after birth, including adoption services.....REJECTED

8.Eugenics -amendment to outlaw abortion based on disability/race.....REJECTED

9. Gendercide - ban abortions based on the selection of the baby's gender...REJECTED

10. Parental/guardian consent sought for underage girls prior to abortion, (as required for all medical procedures anyway) .....REJECTED

11. That no public money be used to pay for abortion, other than cases where there is a risk to the life of the pregnant woman...REJECTED

12. Ban on the sale of bodily remains/organs of a foetus........ REJECTED

13.Ban on carrying out foetal experiments..... REJECTED

14. Publish an annual statistical report with respect to the incidence of and trends......REJECTED

The government are so keen in setting the legislation in stone, without interference, they have recommended that 5 years must lapse before a review takes place.

Minister for Health, Mr. Harris refused all these reasonable amendments which were labelled 'unnecessary', 'grossly offensive', 'misogynistic', 'distasteful', 'insulting', 'disrespectful'.

What he was in favour of, was to replace any reference to 'pregnant woman' and 'her' in the bill, to 'pregnant person' and 'their' as it could be too offensive to transgenders.. He also is open to nurses/midwifes to carry out abortions.

Peadar Tóibín TD, suspended by SF for voting pro-life, said the legislation is much more extreme than what voters wanted. It is fact, we voted to 'repeal' the 8th and amend, but not 'to vote on any particular law'. (Referendum Commission booklet)

Carol Nolan TD, also suspended previously, reported that some on the committee were 'laughing during discussions'. Killing indeed is laughable. Denying babies at 5 months on-wards pain relief, prior to abortion is laughable. Watching a live baby, from failed abortion, squirm and die without intervention is laughable.

Abortion is being bulldozed through, one of the most liberal and extreme regimes in the WORLD (Dr. K. Fuller) As TD Louise O'Reilly stated last week ''The notion that there are alternatives to the termination of pregnancy, which there aren't ''.

My view is that in it's current form, this bill is shameful, hideous, inhumane and cruel. Ireland for abortion 'healthcare' and abortion all the way...... Bring it on!

harris is more concerned about deleting any mention of "woman" from his abortion legislation than preventing potential pain caused to the unborn child during an abortion . He really has gone full circle , from initially promising his constituents that he would not support abortion to administering one of the most liberal abortion regimes in europe .
