Thread: IMO rejects legislating for X Case.

  1. #1

    Default IMO rejects legislating for X Case.

    Doctors reject abortion motions at IMO conference - RTÉ News

    This certainly puts the cat among the pigeons. It's very difficult to see the government keeping any trace of cohesion if the experts are already against them. It's well known that there were Some high profile) FG TDs ready to either abstain or vote against, but with this rejection, their number is likely to increase.

    Could Labour use this as their excuse for jumping ship, now that they have their pensions safely secured?

    If the doctors aren't the experts on a medical issue, who are?

    Feminazi cranks know more than doctors on this issue. Didn't you know?

    This is interesting news. It pretty much rubbishes Rhona Mahoney's ridiculous view that all doctors are crying out for legislation to protect them from being prosecuted right left and centre (despite no one ever having been prosecuted)

    it depends are Irish doctors smarter than British, US or French doctors? I'll bow to medical science most of the time, just not sure of Irish Catholic "science"

    It's not a medical issue.

    Why would Labour want to jump ship at this time and precipitate a general election? I imagine that any attempt by the Labour Party to jump ship at this point would result in a change of leader and Labour remaining within the Coalition.

    I see. And who do you propose will perform the abortions under the new law? And diagnose suicidality? And medical threats to the woman's life?

    The hospital janitor? The lady who answers the phones?

    You'll notice most of the speakers were GPs, so it won't be them either. Nor the psychiatrist. Who apparently is also an expert in legislation.
