"I have read recently an interesting comment by Vladimiro Zagrebelsky relating to the change in abortion law in Ireland. I learned from it that its Author is an opponent of the so-called ‘right to abortion’ and a great supporter of restrictive abortion laws". Piotr Mazurkiewicz (Poland) wrote in SIR Europe’s editorial (click here). It would not be surprising "if not for the fact that he is also an advocate of the new Irish law perversely called the ‘Protection of Life During Pregnancy Act 2013’". According to Mazurkiewicz, "the internal contradiction in the arguments presented, as always, could rise from ignorance of facts, be the result of logical errors in reasoning or of the luck of sincerity". In fact, "The reading of the Act done by the Irish bishops is slightly different. They pointed out that the Bill means that ‘in practice the right to life of the unborn child is no longer treated as equal to that of the mother. This represents a fundamental shift in current medical culture and practice in Irish hospitals, which to date have provided some of the safest places in the world for a mother and her unborn child during pregnancy precisely because they were treated as two patients with an equal right to life’".
