A young woman in Ireland was denied an abortion despite claiming she was suicidal. In response, she went on a hunger strike but later agreed to have the baby delivered at 24 weeks by Caesarean section. Her case has sparked a debate over the relatively new Protection of Life During Pregnancy Act, which allows for abortions only when there is substantial risk to the life of the mother, including the threat of suicide. Many say the case exposes major flaws in the new legislation.
