NEVER AGAIN - Legislate now!

On Wedneday November 28th at 7pm in Dublin, thousands with gather again in vigil for Savita and in protest of the government at the Dail, to demand legislation. Signing up to this Thunderclap means you will join us whether you can stand with us in person or are somewhere else in the world - please add your voice to this cause.

The death of Savita on 28 October 2012 in Galway in Ireland, led to nationwide protests which spilled over into India, England, USA and many other countries, calling for the review the abortion laws in Ireland. This pressure on the government must not end.

Halappanavar, a Hindu of Indian origin, was suffering from a miscarriage when she was 17 weeks pregnant, and she sought medical attention and treatment at University Hospital Galway where she was denied a life saving abortion.

Her husband, Praveen Halappanavar, said that the hospital told them the foetus was not viable, but they could not perform an abortion, because Ireland was a Catholic country and the foetal heart was still beating. 

During the next several days, Halappanavar developed septicemia and multiple organ failure, which led to her death. Her husband said he has "no doubt" that she would still be alive if she had had an abortion

The outpouring since has been incredible and pressure on the Irish government to legislate for safe and legal access to abortion where the mothers life is at risk has increased. This thunderclap will coincide with a protest happening outside the Dail in Dublin at 7pm on Wednesday 28th of November. Make your voices heard, around the world. Legislate now.

Savita's Laws

Savita died needlessly. The Irish government know it and we must ensure they legislate for Savita now, for the X Case and for all women's right to chose in Ireland. Praveen, Savita's husband has shown tremendous integrity and resilience - we must demand change, now.
