In response to Savita Halappanavar’s needless and shocking death, due to being denied a lifesaving abortion in Galway Hospital this October, I have written to my local TDs and reminded them that it has been over twenty years since the Irish people voted to protect the rights of the mother as well as that of the unborn child, and telling them that it is time our government stepped up and fulfilled its duty to protect the rights of women in Ireland.
If you are a resident in Ireland are eligible to vote and believe that NO WOMAN SHOULD DIE NEEDLESSLY, I ask you to take time to go to this webpage and contact your local TDs. The process is simple and will take hardly five minutes of your day.
Thank you. Please pass this message on. Also, if your TD gets back to you and you want to publicly acknowledge their response, send it to me, I will paste it below (or you can put it in the comments.)* (post continues on Pg 2)
