Well, you could have knocked us down with a feather when Simon Harris welcomed Peter Boylan as his Abortion-Doctor-In-Chief, with the task of rolling out abortion services across the country.
Only joking, of course, everyone saw that one coming.
“The things I no longer believe in, I no longer do”. Bertrand de Rochambeau, president of the National Union of Gynecologists-Obstetricians, was interviewed by a journalist of the programme “Quotidien” on TMC, on Tuesday 11 September. He explained that he now refused to carry out abortions.
It was a telling moment at the farcical and, to quote Professor Patricia Casey, “deeply imbalanced” Abortion Committee hearings.
To date, all of the medical professionals who had been chosen by the largely pro-abortion TDs on the Committee, had spoken in favour of legalising abortion. Not one pro-life doctor had been asked to give evidence. Dr Fergal Malone of the Rotunda appeared before the Committee on October 11th.
A friend of mine attended Holles Street maternity hospital where she gave birth to a beautiful little girl with a life-limiting condition. The baby girl knew nothing but love until she passed away in her mother’s arms just hours later. My friend said Rhona Mahony was her doctor at that time, and she felt that Dr Mahony didn’t seem to understand that this little girl was precious and valued and loved in exactly the same way as every other child, even if her disability was so severe that her life was very short. She also said that Dr Mahony had suggested abortion to her when her baby girl was first diagnosed as being so seriously ill.
