But this information is lost on ideologues who never let a good crisis go to waste.

Thus rallies to legalize abortion in Ireland are being held in and out of that country. The fact that women in Ireland who want an abortion have to travel to England is being described as Irish indifference over the plight of Savita and the 4,000 Irish women who go to England for an abortion each year—even though nearly all of those women want abortions for purely elective reasons.

And this tempest is occurring even though an abortion may have killed Savita faster than her infection did.

Abortion activists are hoping the world will not notice the true facts in the midst of a wave of compassion over a woman’s tragic death, but there’s never been a better time to refuse their calls to throw the baby out with the bathwater.
