An anti-abortion vigil saw Cardinal Sean Brady urging 5,500 people at the rally to lobby their politicians over a draft abortion bill.
She was denied an abortion since it was illegal in Ireland. Women in Ireland have to travel to England for this process.
Her death caused mass furore across India. An innocent life could not be saved because a medical procedure could not be carried out citing local laws. The fact these local laws were influenced by religion were a matter of worry.
However, the Irish government took a learning from this incident.
According to this news article, the Irish cabinet agreed for new terms under the abortion bill. Under the new legislation, abortion would be allowed if the pregnant lady's life is at risk.
The new decision looks like below ( quoted verbatim )
Under the terms of the bill three consultants would be asked to review a case and all must agree for a termination to proceed, Irish media reported.
If a termination is not approved a woman would be able to appeal to another panel of three doctors but they must also be unanimous for it to go ahead.
However, this decision has not gone down well with the Church. The Church has made the following comment.
Catholic bishops have branded changes to Ireland's strict abortion regime as morally unacceptable saying "if approved it would make the direct and intentional killing of unborn children lawful in Ireland."
It would be a definitely a step back if the new law is not passed citing religious views and opinions.
