The jury heard that Mrs Halappanavar would probably still be alive today if the law had allowed an abortion. Savita Halappanavar was 17 weeks pregnant when admitted to University Hospital Galway on October 21, 2012, with an inevitable miscarriage. The 31 year old died a week later in intensive care from multi-organ failure from septic shock and E.coli, four days after she delivered a dead foetus. (Photo by Clodagh Kilcoyne/Getty Images)
