An inquest into the death of a woman in Ireland who was refused an abortion has begun in Galway. Thirty-one-year-old Savita Halappanavar was 17 weeks pregnant and miscarrying when she arrived at the Irish hospital last year. She needed a medical termination to save her life but doctors refused on the basis that Ireland is “a Catholic country”. She died a week later from septicemia. The court heard Ms Halappanavar has already been told her foetus would not survive when she was refused the termination.
