Woman Refused To Be Connected To Monitor On Shabbos ....Her Fetus Died

A chareidi woman hospitalized at Tel Hashomer Hospital due to a medical problem related to her pregnancy refused to connect to the monitor on Shabbos for fear of Chilul Shabbos – and after Shabbos it became clear that the fetus had died, Yediot Achronot reports on Wednesday, 5 Cheshvan.
The woman, in her 30s, was hospitalized in the past few days due to a medical problem. When she was required by the medical staff to connect to the monitor, as part of the treatment, she refused to do so.
On motzei Shabbos, the woman was connected to the monitor to check the fetal pulse, but then, unfortunately, the tragedy was realized as the baby was pulseless.
At Tel Hashomer Hospital, they explained that they had responded to the woman’s demand not to connect to the monitor because there were no signs of fetal distress, so the law did not allow her to undergo treatment against her will.
It was also reported that despite her objections, the medical team again recommended that she undergo the examination, but the woman persisted in her refusal.
According to the report in Yediot Achronot, there is no suspicion of negligence on the part of the hospital.

Ignorance at it's best.
She'll go to heaven for keeping Shabbos then go to Hell for killing her child

So if a women does not use a fetal monitor and the baby dies in utero the mother is a murderer? Wow that is really an amazingly stupid thing to say. The trend among the intelligent cognoscenti who have done their homework on medical intervention,pregnancy, and childbirth, is to reduce or eliminate interventions like fetal monitoring,immediate cord clipping, and various other artificial and scientifically dubious approaches that have been sold as medically neccasary.

Aish,

Not a tragedy... primitive, religious fundamentalist stupidity.

There was a time I would have bought into the same BS. It took me a while to unlearn it and let common sense prevail.

This woman is nothing more than a religious fool and a true loser.

Chafraud, I mean just overall. The part that she refused to take the help is one as well.
