Letter to
TFMR IRELAND Irish Government
I just signed the following petition addressed to: Irish Government.

----------------
Many expectant mothers experience the tragedy of having a baby with a fatal abnormality. This means that their baby can never survive outside the womb, and the diagnosis is always heartbreaking. When these babies are born, their parents treat them with the same love as a live-born infant. The children are given a funeral ceremony and the parents mourn their loss for the rest of their lives, as do the brothers and sisters of the lost child.

At present, the agony of these mothers is compounded by the fact that Irish law does not permit the early delivery of these beloved babies. Instead, mothers are obliged to carry babies with no hope of survival to full term, in the full knowledge that their pregnancy is leading only to despair.

This is not a civilised way to treat mothers who looked forward with great anticipation and love to the arrival of their babies and who were devastated by the news that their child will not and cannot survive.

All we ask is that the Irish State does not force us to prolong the emotional agony of carrying a baby that will without question be born dead or live a very very short uncomfortable life.

Is it too much to ask in a modern democracy that women be spared such suffering? We ask you, as a humane and decent legislator, to consider what we have said and ask yourself if, in all conscience, you can continue to support such a dreadful situation.

Looking forward to hearing from you

Sincerely,
