Remembering Savita
Tomorrow marks the beginning of the holiday season, a joyful time of year for my family and so many others.
But for me, the recent death of a woman in Ireland who was denied a medically necessary abortion has cast a dark cloud over this time of celebration. Savita Halappanavar’s death underscores just how dangerous political interference in personal medical decisions can be for women and our families.
Savita Halappanavar, a 31-year old dentist, died last week after she was forced to endure days of agony in a hospital in Galway, Ireland. Savita was 17 weeks pregnant, and although her doctors knew she was miscarrying, they would not end her pregnancy. Savita’s husband reports that she begged repeatedly for an abortion, but was told that Ireland’s ban on pregnancy termination prevented them from giving her the care she needed. When the fetus’ heart stopped beating, they finally intervened – but it was too late.
In one of the most advanced countries in the Western world, Savita Halappanavar died of blood poisoning – an entirely preventable death had it not been for political interference in her personal medical decision.
Savita’s death is a reminder that we at Planned Parenthood are in a critical fight to promote access to contraception in the U.S. and around the world. Her death reminds me to stay strong in the face of ideological bullies, and to give thanks for the health and safety assured by legal abortion.
In recent years, anti-women’s health extremists have tried to limit access to contraception, attack and undermine Roe v. Wade, and prevent Planned Parenthood from serving the women, men and young people who need us to prevent unintended pregnancies and reduce the spread of infection.
In remembrance of women like Savita, we at Planned Parenthood will always stay strong in the face of political attacks on women’s health.
