Emily Loen: Success! Enda Kenny has pushed for a vote, ensuring women who miscarry immediately get medical attention, including an abortion.

While living in Ireland, Savita Halappanavar miscarried, and was denied an abortion to complete the miscarriage. Due to a faint fetal heartbeat, Savita was sent home to wait until her fetus slowly died. Overcome with sepsis, Savita lost her life. Irish doctors barbarically ignored a dying woman, while embracing anti-abortion ideology. The International Community calls upon Ireland to legalize abortion, to save women's lives.

    1. Success in the Right Direction!

      Taoiseach Kenny called for a vote, demanding clarification to the laws around abortion when a woman's life is in danger. Ireland has now legalized abortion when a woman's life in is grave danger or if she is suicidal.

      This is crucial, important and the right move. The Taoiseach honors Savita, and all women in Ireland, who have died due to a miscarriage.

      Your signatures added to world-wide clamor that Ireland MUST change its total abortion band. Congratulations!

      This law is start in the right direction. However, rapists can safely impregnate women against their will, and women must carry that pregnancy to term in Ireland. Elective abortion is also still illegal.

      Women and girls will continue to travel to Britain to obtain abortions in most cases.

      These clarifications are essential, but there is still work to be done.

      The supposedly 'pro-life' stance leads the more lives being threatened, to humiliation and to disempowerment of women.

      Every woman has the right to make a choice about their bodies and their future, it should not be dictated to them by others.
