A Very Disturbing Court Case in Dublin – Blaming A Woman Called Bernadette Scully

leave a comment »

A very disturbing court case that brings to the surface an Irish state system blindly pursuing a vendetta against a woman who could not beat insurmountable odds trying to care for her profoundly disabled daughter.
Quality of life matters more than Quantity, mere pointless existence; but a nasty morality mafia, incubated deep within the foundations of partitioned 26 County Ireland, is kept going by an ideology blaming women, and it thrives in the private nursing home industry where plenty of ugly profit can be harvested.
“She said ‘her little lips went blue’ when she gave her the final syringe.
“I’m not sure how long it took. It seemed like an eternity,” she said.
“My hands were shaking,” she said. “I took her up in my arms and she died in my arms.”
She was asked what her aim was in giving the final dose. “To stop the fit,” she said.
“Did you know deep down what the probable outcome was?” she was asked.
“I would say no, not at the time,” she replied, adding that she had been panicked.
Extreme pain
It was suggested she was as low as she had ever been that morning, that Emily was living in extreme pain, and that she had made a conscious decision to take them both out of this world.
The court has already heard that Ms Scully made two suicide attempts that day.
“I did not make any conscious decision to take Emily out of this world,” she replied.
“I did make a conscious decision after Emily died to take myself out of this world.”
The trial continues before Mr Justice Patrick McCarthy and a jury of seven women and five men.”
