A couple of months ago, Ireland was devastated by the death of Savita - an Indian resident who died because our crazy laws made it impossible for her doctors to intervene in her failing pregnancy. Now we hear about a 23-year-old medical student in India who died after being gang-raped on a bus in Delhi.
Two Indian ladies at opposite sides of the world - neither deserved to die, neither was treated with respect. As an Irish person, I'm deeply ashamed by what happened to Savita. As a human being, I'm deeply ashamed by what happened to that other lady (so sorry I don't know her name).
What happened to Savita was the inevitable outcome of socially fascist beliefs (where the foetal heartbeat of a non-being transcends the basic rights of a sentient human being). What happened to her "sister" in India was the inevitable outcome of socially fascist beliefs (where savage male aggression transcends the basic rights of a sentient female).
Both deaths have led to social and political shame. Shame on us.
