Did you know? PARENTS will have no right to sue if their baby is stillborn due to medical negligence



Did you know? PARENTS will have no right to sue if their baby is stillborn due to medical negligence if the 8th is repealed. WATCH Niamh and John discuss Barrister Ben Ó Floinn’s article on this important issue for voters which has been ignored by the government. #VoteNO

“The 8th amendment has been used by lawyers acting on behalf of parents of stillborn children to hold careless third parties to account for the carelessness that led to the still-birth of their child. One such couple was Lavinia Doyle and her partner Luca Chiussi….the HSE argued that Ms Doyle’s child was not a person….The 8th amendment was the bulkwork against this line of arguement.

As long as it remains in the Constitution the 8th amendment makes it clear that the unborn is a person with a right that does not depend him on being born alive. In the Doyle’s case , it helped them achieve..a substantial settlement of their claims.

In the event of repeal, a still born child will be deprived of that legal arguement, no matter how careless the drunk -driver, no matter how negligent the hospital, no matter how irresponsible the State has been in causing his or her death. Holding the powerful responsible for their actions and enforcing the highest standards of carefor mothers and their unborn children is another good reason for voting NO.”

This is a crucial point and should be shared far and wide. If we vote Yes we wipe away the ability of ALL parents to hold someone else accountable for their unborn child’s death.

    Excellent points, watch Irish birth mortality rates rise if the eighth is removed. Ever wonder why Ireland is one of the safest countries for both mother and baby? It's because we put a value on both and the standard of care reflects this. We're not perfect, but we are still ahead of the UK and US on this, countries with huge abortion cultures. something we should be proud of, not made to feel ashamed of. VOTE NO.

    Medical Negligence would not be affected by repealing the 8th amendment. This is simply not true or legally accurate. https://twitter.com/katiedawson23/status/998853313377591296?s=19
