Widower of woman who was denied an abortion to sue Ireland

AP: Praveen Halappanavar, the widower of an Indian woman who died in an Irish hospital after she was refused an abortion, plans to sue Ireland’s government in the European Court of Human Rights. His lawyer confirmed the decision.

Halappanavar’s wife, Savita, died Oct. 28 in Ireland, one week after being admitted to a hospital for severe pain amid a miscarriage. Doctors did not perform an abortion while the fetus still had a heartbeat. Savita fell ill after the dead fetus was removed. A coroner ruled she died from blood poisoning.
