Fatal foetal abnormality: ‘The kindest thing for our baby was to terminate’
Couple told to wait for heartbeat to stop in pregnancy that would not go to full term

A couple who had to travel to the UK for an abortion after their baby was diagnosed with a fatal foetal abnormality have urged voters to repeal the Eighth Amendment so no one else will have to endure the trauma they did.
Susan and Tim Corcoran, from Donoughmore, Co Cork said that in 2013 a scan revealed their baby girl was suffering from Edwards syndrome, a genetic disorder, and would not survive to full term.
