Earlier this May, in a truly historic moment, the Republic of Ireland’s eighth amendment, which made abortion illegal, was overturned after a landmark referendum. Many people came together to show support for the repeal, and arguably, none harder than the family of Dr. Savita Halappanavar — a woman who tragically died from a septic miscarriage after she was denied a life-saving abortion. Touched by her heartbreaking story, campaigner Emma Watson has written a pro abortion letter to pay tribute to Dr. Halappanavar, and honestly, it is probably the most moving message you'll read today.
Savita Halappanavar's father thanks Irish voters for 'historic' abortion vote
Father of woman who died of sepsis after being denied abortion in Ireland says he very happy at projected result of referendum

The father of Savita Halappanavar, the 31-year-old dentist who died of sepsis in 2012 after being denied an abortion during a protracted miscarriage, has said he is “very happy” at the projected result of Ireland’s referendum.
Speaking to the Guardian by phone from his home in Karnataka, south-west India, Andanappa Yalagi said: “We’ve got justice for Savita, and what happened to her will not happen to any other family now.
“I have no words to express my gratitude to the people of Ireland at this historic moment.”
The Pro Life Campaign’s definition of love is cruel
Diarmaid Ferriter: It is a strange kind of love that denies a teenage rape victim an abortion

Speaking at the unveiling of the Pro Life Campaign’s “Love Both” campaign during the week, spokeswoman Caroline Simons said: “Voters who support abortion in limited circumstances need to know that what they hope for with repeal and what they get are two entirely different things.”
What astounding arrogance. Simons has decided that those who will vote for the removal of the amendment have no independence of mind and are naive, delusional dupes who will vote next month unaware of the reality of what they are doing and devoid of a capacity for love. She has also decided what they hope for.

MADRID: The pain hasn’t gone away over these past five-and-a-half years. And there’s not a day that goes by that Andanappa Yalagi doesn’t think of his daughter, Savita Halappanavar, and how her death was so preventable.
Halappanavar died at a hospital in Galway, Ireland, in October 2012 from a septic miscarriage. Now, from his home in Karnataka, he is speaking out, hoping that Irish voters will change the anti-abortion constitutional ban that led to the death of his 31-year-old daughter.
