The forgotten

There has been a lot of condemnation in Ireland, and rightly so, in relation to the numbers of Irish children who have either died from natural causes, or who may have died from some form of neglect while they were in the ‘care’ of the Health Service Executive (HSE) or their predecessors the various health boards.

However, there exists another group of children who have been killed with the authority of the HSE and/or health boards. These are the unborn babies whose mothers were either sent or brought by the HSE to the UK and elsewhere, for the past number of years, for the purpose of aborting their babies – for the convenience of the Irish authorities.

How many such babies might today be alive were it not for the actions of the HSE?
