    Young Woman Dies In Taxi Following Abortion In London.

    Police in the UK are investigating the case of a woman who travelled from Dublin to London for an abortion but died hours after the procedure had taken place. An inquest has still not been held despite her death in January 2012.

    "The 32-year-old woman, who was a foreign national living in Ireland, underwent an abortion at a Marie Stopes clinic in west London. However, she died in a taxi hours later.
    The woman, who was legally resident in Ireland, had sought an abortion at a maternity hospital in Dublin but had been told that it was not legally possible to provide one in this jurisdiction."

    On first evidence (and again there are gaps in the story) it appears to be the exact opposite of the Galway story. A middle aged African woman after one painful but successful pregnancy decides she doesn't want to go through it again and would prefer to kill her unborn baby. An Irish hospital naturally refuses so she goes to London.

    An abortion in these circumstances would also be illegal in most African countries. An other tragedy and this time resulting directly from an abortion, by all available evidence.

    Who will get the spin out first?
    "If she had a lawful abortion here, she would still be alive"
    Or, "abortions can kill mothers as well as the unborn"

    Or we could wait for the findings, following investigation that perhaps clinical negligence (or an unknown) caused her death.

    He said his wife had a child in Ireland in 2010 but the pregnancy was painful and complicated by extensive fibroids.
    The husband said the couple was told that treatment of the condition could involve a procedure that would leave her infertile.
    “We were worried about what would happen when she became pregnant again,” he said.
    “She was sick, but we were told that nothing could be done in Ireland.”
    He said his wife was about 20 weeks pregnant when she travelled to Britain for an abortion. She might have had an abortion sooner, he added, but he and his wife had spent time exploring the various options available to them and raising money for the procedure.
    “We were left on our own to deal with it. We didn’t get any help at all,” he said.
    Thousands of Irish women travel to the UK for abortions every year. Latest figures show that almost 4,000 women from the Republic travelled to England or Wales for an abortion last year.
    One more for the wall of shame.

    People die in childbirth too. Every medical procedure, including giving birth or having your tonsils out carries risk. Do more people die from abortions in the UK than die in childbirth? A rare case this one.

    I am wondering at the enormous delay in holding an inquest. We were told only recently that abortions are good for mothers, and that they save lives.

    And also, dying in a taxi? The abortion industry sounds a cruel one to me.

    Should she not have been kept in for observation after the abortion?

    I see no shame for Ireland.
    Was her life in Danger if she went to term? Was she suicidal? Abortion is illegal in Ireland otherwise.
