Watching a mother die where all abortions are illegal

The Republican party opposes abortion for any reason, including rape, incest and even to save a mother's life.

Ireland, a "Catholic nation," is a Republican dream. At the insistence of celibit men, Abortion in Ireland is illegal in all instances including where necessary to save the life of the mother.

And they will most assuredly watch a mother die, rather than allow her to safely terminate a fail pregnancy.
Savita Halappanavar, a 31-year-old dentist who lived near Galway, Ireland, was 17 weeks pregnant when she was informed, on complaining of severe back pain, that she was having a miscarriage. Despite repeated requests for an abortion, she was told that Ireland is a Catholic country, said her husband, Praveen Halappanavar, and that it would be illegal to terminate a pregnancy while the fetus’s heart was still beating. A few days later, Dr. Halappanavar died of septicemia on Oct. 28 at the University Hospital Galway.
God's will?

This is the America Republicans promise us. Take it in and behold.
