Health Minister Urged To Establish Independent Inquiry Into Holles Street Abortion Case

Fianna Fail's Health Spokesperson Wicklow TD Stephen Donnelly is calling on the Health Minister to establish an independent inquiry into the case of a couple whose healthy baby was aborted after a wrong diagnoses of fatal foetal abnormality.

It emerged yesterday that UK medical experts turned down a request from the National Maternity Hospital to review the case - it made recommendations to Holles Street instead.

The Department of Health is now seeking assurances from the hospital on the 'ongoing safety' of its abortion services.
