Woman is refused a termination by Irish hospital just weeks after abortion was legalised, despite

the foetus showing a fatal abnormality

A woman in Ireland was denied an abortion despite the country recently passing legislation to make it legal.

The woman now plans to travel to England, a well trodden path for Irish woman, to get an abortion to terminate the fetus after it was found to be showing a 'fatal abnormality'.

The Coombe hospital, a leading maternity facility in Dublin, reportedly refused to terminate the pregnancy because it did not 'fall neatly' into a fatal foetal abnormality diagnosis.

In a statement, National Women's Council of Ireland director Orla O'Connor said it is essential that 'complete clarity' is brought to the case, saying what happened 'has the potential [to cause] widespread anxiety for women in Ireland'.

1. The so-called right to life people will try to prevent ANY legal abortion from happening.

This is outrageous!
