She died of an infection, not a miscarriage.......
If the dead or dieing fetus is causing the infection then it could cause the mother to die.
know pro life people like to liken fetus to parasites and viruses and such,
Thats the first time I've ever heard that. So do pro-life people really liken fetuses to parasites?
Why are you carrying on about this at me? I have not likened fetuses to parasites or viruses at all. How on earth is a fetus in ANY way like a virus?
That makes absolutely no sense and only shows your lack of medical understanding. Stick to the subject.
but an abortion would not have cured the infection.
That is yet to be determined there are still two investigations into her death pending.

She was started on antibiotics, you know, what they do for infections, the day before she miscarried.
Typically if something is causing an infection.. like shrapnel, splinters, absessed teeth, septic tissue, apendix, a dead or dieing fetus, diseased
placenta, they, you know.. remove it so it doesn't turn more toxic and continue to poison the blood. Antibiotics do not magically remove the source of
infection. For all we know the fetus or placenta may have had an infection itself.
Don't let facts get in the way though.
You certainly have ignored facts. You have shown us NO evidence that the dieing/dead fetus did not cause the infection.. and given it's still yet to
be properly investigated to say there is evidence would be an outright lie.
Carry on with trying to turn her into a martyr for the pro life battle...... I mean pro choice
Indeed I have not mentioned being pro-choice at all. I am disgusted that YOU would start carrying on about "parasites" and making an innocent woman's
death about "pro-life" and "pro-choice".
The woman WANTED the baby and only asked for it to be aborted AFTER
she was bleeding and gravely ill.. she didn't ask for an abortion through
I actually have compassion for this woman and I resent you implying that I ONLY care about her death as part of a pro-choice agenda. You seem to want
to draw a line in the sand and make it pro-life VS pro-choice issue in order to change the subject and make this thread about abortion rights in
general rather than the woman herself so it's pretty obvious you do not care about her death. This was NOT a "normal" abortion request it was a
request made in a medical emergency so stop trying to spin the issue to being about abotion in general. I have NO doubt there are many "pro-lifers"
who would agree that they should have given her an abortion in order to preserve the life of the mother.
