Religion cost Savita Halappanavar her life: British MP Virendra Sharma
The life of Savita could have been saved, if the medical procedures were taken in need of the patient in the Ireland hospital, said Virendra Sharma, Labour MP.
"Savita Halappanavar, 31, died after complications with her pregnancy on October 28 after being denied an abortion as Ireland is a Catholic country. Halappanavar's family had asked several times for an abortion but were refused due to Ireland's constitution which bans abortion," he said in a statement.
"The Irish authorities need to ensure where there is a complication, risk of life or death, medical procedures are always taken in need of the patient. I am concerned that religious views have taken precedence over medical need, suggesting medical negligence. Two lives were taken on October 28 but it must be made clear that one life could have been saved," Sharma said.
"I'm hopeful that the two inquiries investigating the tragic death of Savita Halappanavar are carried out, answering key questions relating to the decisions and actions that led to the tragic death of Savita Halappanavar. These important investigations need to be answered to the family and friends of Savita."
aaajit vadakayil | 18-Nov-2012Reply | Forward Hi, Punch into google search SAVITA HALAPPANAVAR , THE MURDER OF THE HIPPOCRATIC OATH--VADAKAYIL Psychologists will say-- If someone starts telling you what country you're in , or telling you screamingly obvious facts about that country, ( Ireland is a Catholic country etc ) it's time to look to start worrying, and buzz off from there--- EL PRONTO-- -- for they now intend to teach you a lesson you will never ever forget. If you make the mistake of looking them in the eye , tellin' you are NOT Catholic or Irish , but a Hindu Indian -- -- then only God save you from Catholic vindictiveness, we in India are too familiar with this during our 400 years of slavery, to white Catholics. Wise men will tell you that people simply do not bring up the country they are in , in a context just like that unless they are being racist. Wisdom dictates -- Savita%u2019s tearful termination pleas were taken less seriously because they were perceived as the pleas of an unchurched , uncouth , pagan foreigner who should have some more respect for Irish Catholic beliefs and values. Which Indian doctor will tell a Catholic white woman that you are in HINDU INDIA now? Capt Ajit Vadakayil ..
Manipulating wordsSikhExpatriate | 17-Nov-2012Reply | Forward Did the Hindu MP, Mr Virender Sharma ever say that religion cost 4000 sikhs their lives in 1984 in New Delhi. I thought that was a more direct connection to religion costing someone their life.
India vs IndiaSwapan Chakravarthy | 25-Nov-2012Reply | Forward I am not from Hindu India, but can Sikh International explain why laddoos were savoured in Vancouver and Calgary television images of which enraged the mobs. Also can Sikh International tell us how many Sikhs were killed by Muslim neighbours in 1947. Hard questions bit nothing to do with the case of Savita..
