A woman who was forced to travel to Britain for an abortion despite being terminally ill has been awarded ‘substantial’ compensation by the State, the Irish Times reports. Michelle Harte of Wexford, who has since died of cancer, sued for violation of her human rights last year after Cork University Hospital advised her to terminate her pregnancy because of the risk to her health, but would not authorise an abortion
In this case they paid out in record time hoping it would stay hushed up,, political cowardice ,,be sure if it was a government ministers wife or daughter there would be no refusals or trips to england,, spineless government run by spineless ministers
