Organised Hysteria

The experience of living in Ireland, in the past week, has made me want to run far far away. I sort of fancy a nice little sunny island somewhere, but that is only wishful thinking on my part, as this is where I live, and I'll just have to put up with being Irish for the foreseeable future. Oh dear :-(

Hysteria erupted in Ireland last week. Yes, a big mad emotional reaction swept across the nation, but the reaction was all based on a lie. This hysteria was created, and sustained by the Irish Choice Network, assisted by our biased liberal media, after the death of poor Savita in a hospital in Galway. The ICN probably thought that all their Christmases had come at once, when they were tipped of about Savita Halappanavar's death. It is disturbing to think that any organisation could so blatantly use the grief of a husband and a family to further their own cause. I can understand  the ICN working towards their "abortion on demand" goal, even if I do not approve. But I can not believe how the Irish Choice Network can lie through their teeth and mislead the Irish people, whipping them and people all over the world into a angry rage filled frenzy, to further this cause. The media bias in reporting this sad story has been glaringly obvious. Unfortunately, the truth was abandoned in favour of an agenda. Our journalists need some serious prayer.

As of yet we do not know what caused Savita's death, but any person with a brain would realise that it was not the lack of abortion in Ireland. But the facts do not seem to matter anymore. 

Less than 10 days ago, we voted to give Irish children rights in our Constitution, but over the weekend thousands marched to legislate for the death of unborn children. What sort of schizophrenic country are we living in??

The battle to protect our unborn Irish children has begun. Let us not be found wanting!

"Nothing we do to defend the human person, no matter how small, is ever unfruitful or forgotten. Our actions touch other lives and move other hearts in ways we can never fully understand in this world. Don’t ever underestimate the beauty and power of the witness you give in your pro-life work."
~ Archbishop Charles Chaput

St Gianna, pray for us
Mary Mother of the Irish, protect our unborn
St Michael the Archangel, assist us in this battle
Oh, sacred Heart of Jesus, we place all our trust in you.

The whole Media frenzy as the pro-abortionists control the few Media outlets responsible for the planned, egregiously dishonest coercion. The IT clearly arranged with the pro-abortion activists when to publish the story, with pro-abortion spin to coincide with pro-abortion protests (misrepresented as spontaneous rallies in response to Mrs Haalappanavor's death). This is totalitarianism at work. We have no independent public interest journalism in this country.

Its unbelievable the media frenzy behind this case. They could not care less about Savita or her baby and are simply using her case to further their agenda of death by abortion. We really do need to pray alot and do penance at this time. The Ocean to Ocean pilgrimage continues in Ireland with the replica of the Image of the Black Madonna and it couldn't have happened at a better time. It is in Knock Shrine today. Will be in Dublin Thursday and Friday I think...more details on their website.

As an Orthodox Christian convert born and bred in Ireland may ai state that the hysteria being whipped up in the Irish media about this sad case is simply extraordinary. It seems every media commentator has to prove his or her " pro choice" credentials by outpouring and emoting as much "anger" and of course obligatory "grief" over this sad case. I wonder why they were not so able to express "anger" and "grief" over the women who have died following abortions, or why no "anger" and "grief" for the thousands of children whose lives are terminated by abortion. After the Orthodox Divine Liturgy recently some of us were talking and it seems very clear that Satan is working hard in Ireland these days, and he has many well educated helpers in the Irish media. We Orthodox Christians know the reality of anti- Christian secularist oppression, there are 49,000 Eastern Orthodox Christians in Ireland now. We know where this sort of hysteria can lead, and I am sure there are some in the fanatical end of the "women's right to choose" mob who would like nothing better than to see pro- life campaigners in our own Irish " camps". I am confident the vast majority of Orthodox Christians in Ireland stand shoulder to shoulder with other pro-lifenpeople. We should not be surprised by this however as Our Lord said in the Beatitudes "Blessed are you when men revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for your reward is great in heaven." (Matthew 5:2-12; Cf Luke 6:20-26)

John Gabriel, what you have said is very true. The frenzy has been schemed at and coordinated, because amidst such hysteria, the truth can be more easily ignored, those who speak the truth more easily bullied and intimidated, and legislation based on lies, illogic and injustice more easily got through. And as the main Media in Ireland are colluding in the abortion lobby deception, people who are not well informed have no reliable independent source to go to in the "mainstream" Media. RTE, IT, TV3 have shown continually how they are deeply involved in the abortion industry and lobby attempt to legalise abortion, and they will not report on the facts of the Halappanavar case and that it has nothing to do with abortion and its illegality. How much coverage did the so-called journalists give to the International Symposium on Maternal Healthcare held in Dublin in September, when the true experts re-affirmed the fact that abortion is never necessary to save a woman's life. What she needs is medicine, which in rare situations can result in the death of the baby. Medicine, not abortion is what is given in Ireland, making it one of the safest countries in the world for women and their babies. People need to find independent, reliable, ethical Media sources. The Catholic Voice, Alive, are examples of Catholic papers that give the factual and moral truth on the most important issues. Thank you, Caroline.
