It could have been any of us

What has happened to Savita Halappanavar was barbaric, cruel, inhuman and wrong.

We can’t bring Savita back but we can make sure this never happens again. Any woman in Ireland could lose her life because of our politicians’ cowardice. It could have been any of us.

I’ve already written to my local TDs to ask for legislation on X and received a handful of rubbish responses. Some of them didn’t even reply.

But we’re not entirely powerless. I’m going to this tonight, and I hope to see some of you there. RIP Savita.
