The shame of a "Catholic Country": gallery

TimesLIVE | 18 November, 2012 11:05

A wave of protests have taken place across Ireland in recent days in response to the death of 31-year old Savita Halappanavar who died of septicaemia following a miscarriage 17 weeks into her pregnancy. The hospital refused to abort the foetus, telling her and her husband "This is a Catholic Country", resulting in Halappanavar going through days of pain, ending in her death.
