Catholic Ireland has a near total ban on abortions. The only exception is life a threatening issue on the mother. Thousands of women travel to the UK to have an abortion for this reason.

A 17 year old pregnant young woman is refused an abortion. The fetusĀ  has a rare disease, resulting in the halt of growth of brain tissue. It will die immediately after it’s born. She has been invited to the highest court to be heard, but also received an order not leave the country. Her lawyer advised her to igmore the order.

This is so wrong.
