Savita had a heartbeat, too

Posted by Secular on November 19, 2012

We previously posted Michael Nugent’s article, reporting on the pointless death of 31-year-old Savita Halappanavar, a Hindu victim of Ireland’s vague and outdated anti-abortion laws.

In this article Karen Kissane writes, “One person’s religious freedom must end where it hurts another’s right to health or happiness – or, as in Halappanavar’s case, the right to life itself. As protesters outside the Irish Parliament last week pointed out, Halappanavar had a heartbeat, too.”
