Dr Adedayo Adedeji and nurses Gemma Pullen and Margaret Miller, employees of Marie Stopes International, appeared in court in London on 19th June 2015 charged with the manslaughter of Aisha Chithira, a 32 year old woman from the Republic of Ireland who suffered a horrific death just hours after an abortion at a Marie Stopes clinic in Ealing in January 2012. Her unborn child was 22 weeks old. All three of the Marie Stopes employees have been charged with manslaughter by gross negligence and for "failing to take reasonable care of the health and safety" of Ms Chithira.

If you listen quietly, you can almost hear the pro-abortion feminists that so often screech about a woman’s right to ‘safe and legal abortion’ and right to ‘healthcare’ scratch their heads in befuddled silence wondering how they could explain Ms Chithira’s death and twist it to promote their own agenda , just like they did with Savita Halappanavar.

Colin Gibbs from the Crown Prosecution Service revealed to the court that Ms Chithira suffered internal tears, major blood loss and that she had then collapsed on the floor hyperventilating. She was then discharged several hours later at 8.30pm and put in a taxi, where she fell unconscious. She was then brought to A&E, but was pronounced dead by 10pm.

Why did the Marie Stopes employees ‘discharge’ their patient and dump her in a taxi when she was in such a critical condition and in need of emergency medical help? Why was an ambulance not called to the Marie Stopes clinic? I suppose it wouldn’t look very good to have an ambulance pull up with flashing lights and ear piercing sirens outside the ‘leading provider of sexual and reproductive health services’. Instead, it took a taxi driver to care enough for Ms Chithira to bring her to the hospital, while the Marie Stopes employees wiped their hands clean and counted their blood money.   

Blinded by anger and arrogance, the pro-abortion feminists will no doubt rise up with freshly made placards reading ‘We Are All Aisha Chithira’ and screech that a woman from the Republic of Ireland died in a taxi in London because she couldn’t get an abortion in Ireland. That’s what killed her, they will say.

How could Caitríona Ruane, Sinn Féin, the Alliance party and the Green Party sign a petition of concern TWICE to keep the Marie Stopes centre in Belfast open? Caitríona Ruane hid behind the guise of a ‘woman’s right to healthcare’. But a woman and her unborn child are dead because of this ‘healthcare’. Yes, Dr Adedeji, and nurses Pullen and Miller may have qualifications and use sterilised instruments in a pristine clinic. No doubt they meet the requirements of the Care Quality Commission. Likewise, the Marie Stopes centre in Belfast hide behind the false assurance of working hand in hand with the Regulation and Quality Improvement Authority (RQIA).  But the horrific reality of abortion remains. With the administration of RU 486 an unborn child is torn from his or her mother’s womb and flushed down a toilet. In Ms Chithira’s case and in the abortion of a terminally disabled unborn child, the unborn child is injected with potassium chloride poison and torn to pieces or pushed from his or her mother’s womb and left to die, gasping for breath. 

The tragic death of Aisha Chithira and her unborn child should make Caitríona Ruane, Sinn Fein, the Alliance party and the Green party hang their heads in shame. Abortion is not ‘treatment’ or ‘healthcare’ or any other euphemism they use. Abortion is the deliberate killing of an unborn child. Marie Stopes’ sole interest is profit. They don’t care about women and they certainly don’t care about their unborn children. 

Dr Adedayo Adedeji and nurses Gemma Pullen and Margaret Miller were due to stand trial at the Old Bailey on the 3rd July 2015.

Precious Life would like to extend their sympathies to Aisha Chithira’s family, and hopes that Dr Adedayo Adedeji and nurses Gemma Pullen and Margaret Miller will be brought to justice.
