Ireland opens new probe into death of woman denied abortion
Reuters: On Friday, the Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA) watchdog, which is government-funded but independent of the state health service, said it had launched an investigation after receiving information from the health service and University Hospital Galway, where Savita Halappanavar died.
Halappanavar, a 31-year old dentist, was admitted to hospital in severe pain on Oct. 21 and asked for a termination after doctors said her baby would not survive, according to her husband Praveen, but surgeons would not remove the fetus until its heartbeat stopped days later.
Praveen believes the delay contributed to the blood poisoning that killed his wife on Oct. 28.
