Yesterday 28 October was the fourth anniversary of Galway dentist, Savita Halappanaver's death which could have been prevented if the 8th Amendment was repealed. "On 23 October 2012, upon being told that the foetus will not survive, she asks for a termination, and is told it's not legally possible in Ireland while there is a foetal heartbeat. Midwife manager Ann Maria Burke tries to calm an upset Savita and explains that the termination cannot be carried out because Ireland is "a Catholic country". In preparation for a termination on the 24 October, Savita delivers a dead female foetus. At 1:09am, on Sunday 28 October, Savita dies"
