    Ambiguous and unworkable. Not only that, it looks like they’re attempting to graft a one-size-fits-all theory on to very complex real-life situations that can change by the minute.

    That yoke looks like it was done in MS Paint cos they don’t even know how to make a proper flowchart with the correct symbols. “Experts” me hole.

    Leave the decision-making to experienced, reputable healthcare professionals who are duty bound and always act in the best interest of their patients and according to their conscience.

      Jesus. I actually agreed with you completely until the last two words. If you had said medical ethics I’d have agreed totally. For opposite reasons though undoubtedly.

      Still though, I’ll wash but I’ll never be clean.

      No. Just in the best interest of their patients.

    “Leave the decision-making to experienced, reputable healthcare professionals who are duty bound and always act in the best interest of their patients and according to their conscience.”

    How about leaving the decision making to the woman concerned and everybody else mind their own business!

          I’ve never self-diagnosed pregnancy and I’ve never been brainwashed to think abortion was a cure.

          You on the other hand, perpetuate the myth that desperate and unstable women should be allowed to do whatever they want, regardless of the consequences to themselves and their babies. Pathetic the way you go on as if it was some 21st century civil rights movement.

            Ahhh, all those unstable women we have to keep in line!!!
            But sure, you don’t have to be sitting up nights wondering what the UNpregnant unstable women are doing with themselves.

            It is a human rights movement…because bodily autonomy, self-determination, equal access to healthcare are all human rights. (I won’t mention the UN Human Rights Committee or the European Court of Human Rights or like all the 80% of people in Ireland who think it’s a right people should have when they’re lives are at risk for fear of eliciting paranoid flights of anti UN, pro-medicopaternalism)

    Forget the context , I havent seen a PFD of that caliber since 1998 , and if thats a reflection of their competency, well then… ‘ help the women of Ireland…

        Actually “Test not satisfied” is the conclusion. Shouldn’t this be at the bottom of the chart?

        The way they have it set up does kinda imply that they might do something, which is misleading in itself. And hardly the point of the diagram in the first instance.
