Savita Halappanavar's medically unnecessary death

http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2012/...

""This is a Catholic country," was what Irish doctors told Savita Halappanavar after she learned she was miscarrying her pregnancy and asked for an abortion to avoid further complications. She spent three days in agonising pain, eventually shaking, vomiting and passing out. She again asked for an abortion and was refused, because the foetus still had a heartbeat.

Then she died."

This Cult of Death continues to this day.

Religion kills. Sometimes slowly, sometimes swiftly. Sometimes it kills the whole person, sometimes just the mind. Sometimes individuals, sometimes whole societies.

This is a horrible story and illustrates how deadly belief in deites can be.
