Abortion probably would have saved Savita Halappanavar’s life

Savita Halappanavar's inquest today will hear details of a post mortem carried out after her death.

The 31 year old dentist died from septicaemia at Galway University Hospital on October 28th last following a miscarriage.

The expert testimony will bring the evidence in the case to a close - a verdict may be returned tomorrow after Coroner Dr Ciaran MacLoughlin gives directions to the jury.

In his evidence yesterday, Dr Peter Boylan, the Clinical Director of the National Maternity Hospital, concluded an abortion would probably have saved Savita's life.
