Brain-Dead Pregnant Woman Should Be Allowed to Die, Court Rules
Greg Daly - published on 12/27/14
Challenging how some seemed determined to manipulate the tragic death of a mother who had dearly wanted her child in order to argue for the removal of Article 40.3.3 of the constitution, Cullen pointed out that, “In countries where there is no protection for the unborn, disagreements sometimes emerge that have to be adjudicated on. There is nothing unique to Ireland about this case as some would try to suggest.”
“It is crass and unseemly,” she said, “the way some people are using this sad case to push for repeal of the Eighth Amendment, which offers the only remaining legal protection for the unborn in Ireland.”
