Pro-abortion activists exploit vulnerable women 365 days a year. The months of October and November however are also exclusively used for the distasteful exploitation of Savita Halappanavar, the anniversary of whose death falls on October 28th.
The truth about what actually happened
In 2012 Savita Halappanavar, an Indian woman living in the Republic of Ireland, died of sepsis.
The coroner’s inquest established that while 17 weeks pregnant, Savita contracted septicaemia with an antibiotic-resistant strain of E-coli. It was that antibiotic-resistant strain that delayed the realisation of doctors to just how life-threatening Savita’s condition was. It was the failure to treat Savita’s septic condition that led to her death.
Ireland’s eighth amendment was not to blame
Ireland’s eighth amendment, which was repealed in 2018, was pro-equality legislation which recognised every human’s basic right to life and saw mothers and their unborn children as equal. There was nothing within Ireland’s eighth amendment that should have prevented Savita receiving the medical treatment she needed.
A highly emotive story is fashioned
Three days before the public reports of Savita’s death were due to be released, emails had been circulated amongst Ireland’s pro-abortion activist groups enthusiastically divulging the news of her death. It was heralded as a ‘major news story.’
Within hours, pro-abortion strategy meetings had been arranged in Dublin to devise the plan which would see Savita’s death manipulated to concur with pro-abortion demands.
Pro-abortion campaigners argued that the eighth amendment killed Savita, because it denied her the right to an abortion which they falsely claimed would have averted her death. They fashioned a highly emotive, close-to home story, which branded any person who dared deny it as ‘heartless’ or ‘anti-woman’.
They launched a six-year crusade, leading up to the repeal of the eighth amendment, under Savita’s name which was based on misinformation, manipulation and deceit.
When news of Savita’s death officially broke, the truth had already been twisted and over-shadowed by the emotive story fashioned by those pro-abortion campaigners. Within days, Savita’s face was plastered across cities, towns and social media platforms, with calls for the repeal of Ireland’s eighth amendment.
Savita as a person was disregarded
In May 2018, Ireland’s eighth amendment was repealed and the right to kill unborn humans was sanctioned. This news was greeted by hordes of celebratory street parties and crowds, who danced and drank to abortion whilst holding pictures of Savita’s face.
Pro- abortion campaigners scrambled to exploit the tragic and avoidable death of a young woman. They disregarded Savita as a person, and saw only her death as a lucky tactic to craft the story which repealed Ireland’s pro-equality eighth amendment and ushered in the legislation to kill Ireland’s tiniest children.
