What should I tell about a young woman named Savita Halappanavar that she was smart, beautiful and vivacious; that she was a doctor by profession and loved to dance; that she was ever vibrant in personality and had a diamond smile; that she was recently married and was expecting her first child; that her womb had along-with the fetus, some half born dreams of a cherished future; that she died with 17 weeks pregnancy due to septicaemia after being denied a termination despite being repeatedly requested for one.
