Jessica made an appearance on our teammate Mervyn’s local radio show on Sunday, on the subject of abortion in Ireland. Currently, abortion is not legal in Ireland, but Pro-choice campaigners have recently rallied around the case of an Indian woman who died in Galway to push the issue. Savita Halappanavar died of infection while miscarrying her baby, and in the process requested an abortion. An investigation is underway as to what actually happened. In the meantime, the story is being presented as if legal abortion in Ireland would have saved the mother’s life, even though currently if the life of the mother is at risk, interventions can be taken even if they could harm the baby.
