    Of course they wouldn't dare admit how often things like this happen, or how most Irish women have to travel to the UK to get any kind of proper abortion care.

    •  That's the key -- the poll I quoted in a comment (0+ / 0-)

      above:

      The national poll also found almost 10% of 18-34 year olds has been involved in a relationship where an abortion took place.
      makes it clear that women in Ireland are getting abortions -- but they're most likely traveling to England to get them.
      That's not much help for people like Savita who was probably to ill to go anywhere.
