Irish girl allowed by court to travel to UK for abortion

The 17-year-old, who is four months pregnant, is challenging the Health Service Executive (HSE) which is preventing her from terminating her pregnancy overseas.

The teenager, who can only be identified as Miss D and from the Leinster region, has been in the care of the HSE since March.

Medics told her last week that the foetus she is carrying suffers from the brain condition anencephaly, resulting in the absence of a major portion of the brain, skull and scalp. The newborn baby will live a maximum of three days.


Why would she want to have her own child executed? Many people have given birth to anencephalic children and cherished the short time they lived on earth.

Something tells me that, since she lives in a country where abortion is illegal, she might not understand what an abortion really is.
