In Ireland the CC has it's say and it says women are not worth saving. The anti choice movement in America is fueled and promoted by the CC. Are we going to allow them the upper hand to tell us women are not worth much? The CC America's Taliban?

"Halappanavar, 31, a dentist, was four months pregnant when admitted to University Hospital in Galway in October. She was going through a miscarriage and pleaded for an abortion, but her doctors, who risk prison if they perform abortions illegally, refused. She contracted septicemia (blood poisoning) a few days later and died.

Her death and the way she was treated by doctors made headlines across Ireland and Europe. An official investigation that followed showed that the procedure would have likely saved her life, and it gave renewed vigor to the pro-abortion rights movement. Even the self-described "pro-life" Prime Minister Enda Kenny agreed it was time to alter the ban, and he squeezed his Fine Gael party to go along despite an election promise that the party would not propose such laws.""

I can't comprehend why there needs to be a "furor" over saving women's lives. What is wrong with these people?
The CC being a male hierarchy see women as second class. Women have zero say .
