Dodgy Doc forces murder?

February 24, 2008

An interesting – and disturbing – comment from one of the women abused by dodgy medical doctor Roman Hasil when he was at Wanganui hospital.

One woman who aborted her child told the Listener: “I basically had to murder somebody because some bastard put me in that situation. It won’t go away.”

So, this poor woman acknowledges her abortion of her unborn child as murder, but (understandably) blames the bungling surgeon whose failed operation allowed her to become pregnant. 

While I feel immense sympathy for her, is it not strange she is so angry over a failed non-lethal (for her) operation, yet was able to – in her own words – murder her own child?

Chilling resonance with the Manurewa tagger murder – the disproportionately harsh outcome (murder in each case) gets little criticism, while the minor event (tagging or bungled gyno op) that triggered the worse event gets slammed.

Make no mistake – Dr Hasil should be struck off and jailed in my view, and was largely responsible for her pregnancy (not wholely, as no such operation can be fully relied upon). What amazes me is her ability to recognise her act of murder, while deflecting most of the attention onto the inept doctor whose actions led to it…

Disturbing that unborn children are seen as so remote from the rest of humanity that they can be acknowledged as killed with no apparent emotion or follow-up.

Even more disturbing is that those who advocate most strenuously for nil violence to children (e.g. Green MP Sue Bradford), are the first to claim a women’s right to kill their unborn children for convenience (not disrupting the mother’s life)…
