SAVITA DEATH: RELEASE EXPERT GROUP REPORT NOW, SAYS TD PRINGLE

first_imgThomas Pringle TD has today called for the immediate publication of the expert group report on abortion following the tragic death of Savita Halappanavar.The report, which Minister Reilly received this week, was established to examine the issues regarding the European Court of Justice’s judgement on A, B and C v Ireland and has made recommendations based on the judgment that the State failed to implement existing rights to lawful abortion where a mother’s life is at risk.“Sadly, we now know what the consequences for failing to implement existing rights are and I am calling on the Minister to publish this report immediately and end this risk right now. There has already been a 20 year delay, let’s not leave this issue on the shelf any longer. “It is not good enough that the Minister has given it a ‘quick glance’ and will then bring it to Cabinet after he gets a chance to look at it properly. A life has been lost because of this legal uncertainty and there needs to be action now so that this tragedy is never repeated.” SAVITA DEATH: RELEASE EXPERT GROUP REPORT NOW, SAYS TD PRINGLE was last modified: November 16th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:SAVITA DEATH: RELEASE EXPERT GROUP REPORT NOWSAYS TD PRINGLElast_img read more
