    Default Savita: candle lit vigil Saturday 17th of November 4 pm Garden of Remembrance.

    Saturday, November 17, 2012 4:00pm.

    March to protest the horrific state of affairs as it stands in Ireland, where Savita Halappanavar in the year 2012 in an Irish hospital died suffering and in pain after being denied an abortion she and her husband repeatedly requested.

    Enough is enough. No more women can die.


    From the Garden of Remembrance to the Dáil, where we will hold a candlelight vigil in conjunction with Galway Pro-Choice to grieve Savita's unnecessary death.

    Woman dies after being denied a termination
    Woman dies after being denied a termination - Indymedia Ireland

    Pro-Choice Ireland have called a demonstration for 6 o'clock this evening Wednesday 14th November outside Leinster House.

    Action on X in conjunction with Galway Pro-Choice has called a candle lit vigil for this Saturday the 17th of November beginning at the Garden of Remembrance at 4 o'clock .

    31 year old Savita Halappanavar died last week after being denied a termination after presenting with a miscarriage. Having originally presented at the hospital with a back pain on October 21st, it was discovered that Savita was miscarrying. She was 17 weeks pregnant at the time.

    Over the course of 3 days in the hospital the doctors refused to carry out an abortion despite there being no hope of survival of the foetus. Savita had requested and abortion several times over the 3 days due to the severe pain she was suffering. She was refused an abortion on the basis that the foetal heartbeat was still beating and that “this is a Catholic country”. After 3 days the foetal heartbeat stopped and finally the foetus was removed. However Savita developed septicaemia caused by the miscarriage and died on the 28th. ...

    That you and your ilk use this poor woman's death for your political ends is appalling.

    I despise campaigning groups who use the tragedy of others to make political points before the full facts of a case are known.

    That applies to pro-life and pro-choice equally

    Absolutely appalling dancing on the poor woman's grave by political opportunists. The lowest form of life that make me ashamed of this country at times.
    Thank you for the six thousand likes.

    You and your ilk are responsible for this womans death by your opposition to the introduction of legislation implementing the X-Case ruling.

    That this woman had to die because of you and your 'ilk' is even more appalling

    I'm ashamed of this country because of people like you: your opposition to legislation implementing the X-Case judgement is responsible for this womans death.

    And I despise people who believe that a life-saving medical procedure should be withheld because of their belief in some mystical deity.
