Letter to Editor 02/12/2018
I feel disgusted and dismayed that our TD's rejected the few humane amendments that were put forward last week during the debates on the 'Regulation of Termination of Pregnancy 2018'.
The mask has indeed slipped off to reveal one of the most barbaric abortion regimes in the world. Mattie McGrath TD asserted that we were 'LIED' to by the Health minister (Mr. Harris) as his promises did not come to fruition.
TD Danny Healy-Rae said, 'We are speaking....about a matter of life and death and he (Mr. Harris) is laughing at us..and grinning'. He was not alone. Pro-abortion TD's sneered and sniggered and heckled so much, that TD Eamon O Cuiv called for them to 'listen and give respect for other people's views' and Mattie McGrath had to defend the democratic right of TD’s to analyse the Bill without intimidation.
By an overwhelming majority, TD's shot down pain relief for babies due to be aborted from 6 months onwards. So much for the baby being 'delivered with a full medical team ' to hand. We were lied to. Surely a baby deserves pain relief before being painfully killed? Not one Fine Gael TD supported the pain relief amendment.They rejected a ban on eugenics and gendercide so that 'a pregnant person' is free to terminate based on sex, race and disability. It is well documented that in other countries these babies are targeted for (ex)termination simply because they are different.
They voted down medical care for babies born alive after abortion where otherwise they are left to suffocate and die. The pro-abortion TD's 'think more of the dog on the street, than they do for an unborn baby'.( Mattie McGrath) TD Kate O'Connell fobbed off abortion survivor stories as 'Fairytales'. Yet Gianna Jessen, Dona Marie, Ana Rosa, Melissa Ohden, are some of the many survivors worldwide.
They rejected the call for parents to be informed and consent given, for their underage girl or teen to have an abortion. Perpetrators of rape can continue to get away with covering up their crime through abortion.TD Carol Nolan said on behalf of the hundreds of thousands, that this free, universal 'healthcare' should NOT be funded by the tax payer. This was rejected as well, which means millions every year, will be diverted from elsewhere to keep abortion mills and incinerators going.
Mr. Harris continues to show utter contempt for the tens of thousands of doctors, nurses and midwives, by bulldozing abortion through without any consultation, bar threatening them with legal sanction. Mattie McGrath stated 'You have met people with the different genders and you REFUSE to meet the doctors, or the nurses'. 'You are going to pay the doctors MORE to carry out abortions than you are, for people to deliver healthy babies'.TD Lisa Chambers proclaimed that ABORTION REGRET was a 'makey uppy thing. It doesn't exist'' Yet the HSE recently awarded 820,000 euro for post-abortion counselling... GIANNA CARE and RACHEL'S VINEYARD counsel women and men in Ireland. Is this TD suggesting that these people are liars? Doesn't she believe in her own mantra to 'Trust women'? . 'Women Hurt' stated 'these remarks are offensive to the people who endure pain, suffering and depression daily, as a direct result of their abortions,' They 'continue to be silenced' and 'airbrushed out of the abortion picture', a billion dollar industry worldwide.
TD Michael Collins stated to Mr Harris 'You DELIBERATELY, in my view, MISLED the public about what this bill would permit or prohibit', disturbing words about our so-called democracy and government. Where is the media out-cry? There will be no reports because the mainstream media are caught up in the propaganda and web of lies. It is my view that the majority of TD's are behaving like deranged tyrants who cannot wait for the blood-fest to begin. What is worse, is that this country grinds on, without even batting an eyelid.
