Irish health watchdog launches probe into Savita’s death

The Irish public health watchdog has announced that it has launched a probe into the death of pregnant Indian woman Savita Halappanavar.



London: The Irish public health watchdog has announced that it has launched a probe into the death of pregnant Indian woman Savita Halappanavar.

The Irish Republic`s health service is already conducting an inquiry, which is now described as a clinical review.

The Health Information Quality Authority, an independent health safety body, will conduct a parallel inquiry, the BBC reports.

Halappanavar died after suffering a miscarriage in University Hospital, Galway.

Her widower, Praveen, claimed she was denied a termination.

Her husband has asked for a full public inquiry into his wife`s death.

He believes she would still be alive if she had been granted an abortion days earlier, when she was told she was losing her baby.

The widower alleged doctors refused his wife`s requests because there was a foetal heartbeat.

According to the report, Savita’s death of the Indian-born dentist has sparked international protests and reignited the debate on the Republic``s abortion laws.
