Savita Halappanavar died on October 28, 2012 from Septicemia, commonly known as Blood Poisoning. It was not caused by her pregnancy and an abortion would not have saved her life.
The liberal media, always ready to pounce on anything that would promote the liberal agenda, reported that Savita was refused an abortion when she went to the hospital. Anyone who would bother to look into the condition of Septicemia would have discovered that abortion would not have increased her chances of survival. Septicemia is a “serious, life-threatening infection that gets worse very quickly” – and abortion is not a treatment for it. A quick look here and here reveals that abortion is never a recommended to alleviate suffering from this disorder. Abortion is actually one of the causes of the disorder.
None of this matters to the pro-abortion crowd. All they care about is advancing their agenda any way they can. If they truly were “pro-choice” and “pro-woman” They would have been just as outraged at the death of Tonya Reaves after a botched abortion at a Planned Parenthood Clinic. After all, they claim that the procedure is “safe”. So where is the outrage for Tonya? Why aren’t they out there advocating for safer procedures and regulations to ensure the safety of the women they claim to care about so much?
The deaths of both women are tragic. The difference between the two is for Savita, abortion would not have saved her life, but for Tonya, abortion ended hers.
