India will take up the case of Savita Halappanavar, who died after being denied an abortion at a hospital, with the government of Ireland.
According to reports, India´s ambassador to Ireland, Debashish Chakravarti, will take the issue up with Irish authorities.
Indian dentist Savita Halappanavar came on October 21 with back pain to Galway University Hospital where she was found to be miscarrying at 17 weeks.
Her husband, Praveen Halappanavar, an engineer at Boston Scientific in Galway, said she had asked several times over a three-day period that the pregnancy be terminated. This was refused, he says, because the foetal heartbeat was still present and they were told: "This is a Catholic country".
