Woman in abortion case tells of suicide attempt

The young woman who was refused an abortion and later had her pregnancy delivered by Caesarean section, has spoken of her attempt to take her own life when she was 16 weeks pregnant.
She says she was a victim of rape before she came to Ireland earlier this year and she found out she was pregnant during a medical check soon after. In an interview with The Irish Times she says she immediately expressed her desire to die rather than bear her rapist’s child, when she was eight weeks and four days pregnant.
She was admitted to hospital last month expressing suicidal ideation at 24 weeks pregnant. She was initially told she could not have an abortion as the pregnancy was too far progressed.
