Doctor and two nurses charged following death of woman after abortion

17 June 2015

"This woman died precisely because she could access abortion in England"

A doctor and two nurses have been charged with manslaughter following the death of an Irish mother who travelled to England to abort her baby.

She had been denied an abortion at a maternity hospital in Dublin. The mother travelled at 20 weeks gestation to Marie Stopes abortion centre in Ealing, West London and died some hours after the abortion. She was pronounced dead after suffering a heart attack and "intensive internal bleeding". [Telegraph, 5 June]

SPUC's General Secretary Paul Tully commented on the case: "Pro-abortionists are making the nonsense claim that more women will die if access to terminations is not allowed in Ireland.  This woman died precisely because she could access abortion in England, not because abortion was unavailable in Ireland."
