Savita Death ‘Catholic Church Should Be Ashamed,Not The Irish’

In Christianity on November 19, 2012 at 21:01

A Catholic Priest in Ireland has stated that ‘“In the face of all the international attention the controversy has caused, I am not ashamed to be Irish at this time,” he stressed.

Speaking further  he added ‘The facts show us we have in fact one of the lowest levels of maternal mortality in the world, which means that whatever practices we have are producing the results that we should respect and respect the commitment of our doctors, nurses, midwives and others who put them into practice every day with very positive results

“When I look at the standards of maternal care that exist in this country and I would hope that we will be able to maintain that”.

“Most doctors would go through their entire career without ever losing a patient coming to them in childbirth. In developing countries the sad thing is that this does occur and even in some developed countries.”

Asked by the paper about the silence of church figures, including himself, since news of the Savita tragedy emerged, he said they did not know what had happened in the case.

He said: “I don’t know the details of what happened.
It is not the Irish per se but the rigid and the antediluvian ,quixotic  Religious practice while keeping mum on the Pedophiles  called the priests!

Time that the Catholic Church is reformed.

‘The Catholic Archbishop of Dublin has sympathised with the family of Savita Halappanavar and described her death as a ‘terrible disaster’.

Archbishop Diarmuid Martin spoke for the first time after Savita died after doctors at a Galway hospital refused to terminate her pregnancy and save her life.

The leading cleric told mass goers: “Here’s a family that six weeks ago was going into what should have been one of the happiest moments of their life – the birth of a new child.

“Now the whole thing has collapsed into a terrible disaster . You just don’t know how the father is standing up to such a terrible disaster.”

The Irish Times has reported that the Archbishop told parishoners that he was however taken aback by some of the reaction to the news of Savita’s death.

Speaking after tens of thousands attended vigils in Savita’s honor over the weekend, he refuted claims that Ireland is not a ‘safe place’ to be pregnant.
