Dail To Debate Latest Baby Organ Scandal

The findings of an RTE Investigates programme will be debated in the Dail tomorrow.

The programme revealed how organs of 18 babies, which had been retained by Cork University Maternity Hospital, were sent abroad to disposed of without the knowledge or consent of the parents.
The hospital has apologised to the families affected, and said it took the decision last year to free up space in its mortuary at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.
A Little Lifetime Foundation , a charity which supports families through stillbirth and neonatal death, says this is a throwback to the organs retention scandal in the 1990s.
