This unusual case has been in the national and international news here in Ireland in recent days:

http://www.independent.ie/national-n...n-3295236.html

An Indian woman living in Ireland was allegedly suffering a miscarriage but doctors could not remove the prenatal because there was a heartbeat; the prenatal was still alive. The woman contracted septicaemia and subsequently died.

The moral scenario presented by the case has caused intense uproar in the media, both nationally and internationally, and is a major setback for the prolife campaign, since virtually all media persons are outraged that an abortion was not allowed to save the mother's life. Public officials were only worried about our international reputation. Moral weight did not enter the argument at all. It could not have come at a worse time for Ireland. It may swing public opinion to favour abortion in life-threatening situations, which is only a stepping stone towards widespread abortion.

They use the most unusual and extreme cases to justify abortion on demand in every case. This is a common false argument used to justify sins. Think of an extreme case, which will obtain the sympathy of persons who do not have a good understanding of ethics, and then use it to claim that every act of that type is not a sin.

Default Media are hypocrites and cowards

Most media today are hypocrites and cowards, pointing fingers pretending to care about causes when all they want to do is push a given agenda, usually vs. traditional faith and morals. They are cowards because they are afraid to confront things directly and honestly plus use underhanded tactics to achieve their sinister purposes. They are usually despicable in their methods and agenda, yet pretend to be the moral lighthouses of society. Make me sick to say the least.

It has shown that there is a lot of unrest about current abortion regulations just under the surface. It only takes a single unusual case like this to stir the pro-abortion rally, who are very vocal at the minute. Sadly, it may swing the abortion issue to the left, especially in that it's now seen as 'necessary' to save lives. But I believe that God's providence is guidinh all this, somehow.
