    Vasectomy Money ran out in March. What are Irish women going we to do?

    Just when the world was biting its nails in the hope that President Trump and Supreme Leftist leader Kim Flung Dung would pull it off, Irish people are warned by a Doctor of an impending disaster. The annual money our wonderful government put aside to provide vasectomies ran out in March. Government views the procedure which is carried out on men as essential in the liberation of women who don’t have to bother about contraception.

    A survey carried out in Britain found that of 1,000 married men who were vasectomized in 2013, only 34 (.34%) of their wives later conceived a baby. Waterford GP Dr Fergus McMarried said that  "They are saying a lot of people who go for the abortions are not 22-year-olds at the start of planning their families.
    "There are actually quite a good few people at the end of their family planning, the 38-year-olds, and they are surprised when a crisis pregnancy occurs and they are heading over to the United Kingdom for an abortion.
    "If that is the case, you can prevent that altogether by making vasectomy more widely available and when people are decided their family is done they can go and get a vasectomy and that's the end of it," he told the 'Irish Medical Times'.

    Doctors association President Mattie O’Tool denounced a proposal by the Minister for Health Simon Harrisment to have the procedure carried out over 2 years to spread the money out for another 3 months. A half vasectomy is no vasectomy at all he said. "You were better complete the job in one operation than split it into 2 stages," he said.

    "If that is the case, you can prevent that altogether by making vasectomy more widely available and when people are decided their family is done they can go and get a vasectomy and that's the end of it," he told the 'Irish Medical Times'.
    Nurse Bridie Scalpel said an injection of cash is needed because with no funding available she expects to be laid off and has contacted her union the INO, seeking severance pay.

    I invite discussion, but I feel there should be a helpline for couples on the waiting list, but whose male partner was not yet done. I think the best thing is to abstain until next year and hope more money will become available.

    The real issue:

    Why is an elective procedure like a vasectomy state funded?

    Valamhic, you are suffering from psychosis. You should seek psychiatric help immediately.

    The Irish Independent saw fit to publish it and it provided quotes from 2 medical doctors. Readers can pick between them and you!

    So is the article wrong? It said 35,000 euros was allocated. I saw the article in the actual printed edition of the newspaper yesterday.

    There is no doubt that it is state funded.

    This is a very good question and I am not sure. i suspect its to keep the Irish Population numbers low so the population can be replaced by the children of migrants of other religions as part of the leftie agenda. The Doctors quoted believe it is necessary tp reduce abortion.

    One presumes that money was for men with medical cards. It's a really simple operation so it can't cost much. It's only day surgery and you're fully awake. It has practically zero side affects and it means no chance of a crisis pregnancy.
