Savita Halappanavar's father calls for change to Ireland's abortion laws
"I want to take legal action against them over the inhumane way they treated my daughter," he said, adding "they are doctors but they were not humane.
"If they had been humane, they would have treated her.
"I do not want this to happen to other people. I am very angry."
The tragedy comes 20 years after a separate controversial abortion case split the country and two years since European judges called for clear direction on when a termination is legal.
The Galway-Roscommon University Hospitals Group and the Health Service Executive's national accident management team announced two separate probes into Halappanavar's death.
Chiefs at the hospital expect to finish its review within the next three months.
Meanwhile, a separate report from a 14-member expert group advising the Government on abortion - in the wake of the European Court of Human Rights ruling - landed on the health minister's desk last week.
Kenny said the Cabinet will examine the expert group's findings before a response is given to the court judgment on or before November 30.
Live in IrelandUlick McGee | 18-Nov-2012Reply | Forward To all concerned, the deceased lady in question choose to live in Ireland. She was not born there and was not an Irish citizen. If you choose to leave your own country and move to another then choose one that reflects your values and beliefs. To expect your "chosen" country to change it's values, beliefs and laws to appease you is an insult to the people and country of Ireland. What right has the father of the dead woman to encourage his country of India to put pressure on Ireland to change it's laws? Maybe he should relax and eat a nice juicy fat beefburger from his sacred cow. If you don't like anything about Ireland you should go back to India.
You sir are an idiotTerje Bergesen | 19-Nov-2012Reply | Forward Sorry, but there is no other way to describe you. The woman had already had a miscarriage at week 17. The child was dying. There was no possible way to save it. Problem is, while dying it was also killing mommy. The doctors chose to allow the baby to kill mommy because of laws based on a nut-case superstition. It is a massive breach of the Hippocratic oath, and borderline murder.
Is there a possibility of the doctors wrong diagnosis ?BMP | 20-Nov-2012Reply | Forward Is there a possibility that the Doctor could have wrongly diagnosed the state of the fetus? what if the child was already dead in the mother's womb?If that is the case shouldn't the reports etc be examined before jumping to the conclusion that the abortion law is wrong.If it is proved that the case is that of medical negligence and not the Law...then the doctor should be held accountable and not the law
