    Default Women dies after being refused termination

    That is totally awful!! She wasn't even catholic or Irish! I can't believe how naive and stupid the law can be at times! Poor woman, poor husband, poor family. RIP

    I felt really emotional reading that, that poor woman and the poor family she was clearly m/c and in a serious condition. The religious stance of the hospital should of played no bearing and I hope the husband sues them for malpractice. She could of been saved.

    It actually doesn't even make sense. Good management would dictate that IV antibiotics be administered 18 hours after rupture of membranes in a viable pregnancy. Given this was a non viable pregnancy, they should have started the antibiotics earlier. She didn't die because she didn't get a termination or because she suffered consequences of miscarriage like bleeding. She died due to infection which could have been prevented even with their pro-life stance. I predict that there is going to be someone getting themselves into trouble over this and maybe losing their medical license. Had antibiotics been started when she presented, there is every likelihood she wouldn't have developed septicaemia (blood poisoning),

    Your right but the fact remains she died. Her baby was going to die anyway. By not removing fetus the infection may not have been controllable. I have had septicemia as a result of retained placenta and reading this article and reading everything she experienced I actually wasn't far off her prognosis. Without removing the retained product immediately I would have died. I was that sick.
