Ireland has a long history of conservative Catholic views and is arguably one of the strongest anti-choice nations in Europe. It was as a result of strong anti-choice legislation, on October 24th, 31 year old Indian dentist, Savita Halappanavar lost her life due to blood poisoning from a miscarrying fetus. Halappanavar was 17 weeks pregnant with her first child when complications resulted in the pregnancy no longer being viable.
