Ireland Enacts Law Providing For Abortion, A First

July 30, 2013 2:26 PM

Ireland now has its first law making abortion legal in the country under specific conditions, after President Michael D. Higgins signed the Protection of Life During Pregnancy Bill 2013 into law Tuesday........

.......The legislation comes after an incident last fall, when as The Irish Times' John Waters says, "a woman died in hospital in Galway as a result, it was said, of a failure to give her an abortion when she requested one and when this would've saved her life."

That incident, which came to be known as the Halappanavar case after the late Savita Halappanavar, "caused a huge controversy which drew attention to the lack of clarity in the law and most politicians preferred not to have to deal with," Waters told NPR's Rachel Martin on .
Context! In that post I was referring to doctors in the US who choose on their free will to not participate in abortions.

This sounds like a classic malpractice suit more than anything else, unless you think mismanagement of sepsis has something to do with one's religion?
