Name the National Maternity Hospital the Savita Halappanavar Memorial Hospital

With the news that the Sisters of Mercy will have no involvement in the new National Maternity Hospital, I propose it be renamed in memorial to Savita Halappanavar who lost her young life due to unacceptable maternal care in 2012.


Savita died as a result of complications from a septic pregnancy at 17 weeks after being denied an abortion. She was told "This is a Catholic country" and such care could not be given to her. She was 31.
