Inquest confirms Indian woman was denied abortion in Ireland
Staff at Galway University Hospital have backed up claims by the husband of Savita Halappanavar that she had asked for and was refused an abortion at the hospital just days before she died last October.
The Irish Times reports:

Halappanavar had been 17 weeks pregnant when she presented at the hospital a week earlier with severe back pain and was found to be miscarrying.Her husband said, following her death, that she had been in pain and repeatedly asked for a medical termination over a three-day period but this was refused as a fetal heartbeat was still present and they were told “this is a Catholic country.”She died in the hospital’s intensive care unit, four days after the fetal heartbeat stopped.
