• I'd like to commend Hilary Ni Lorchain ('I bought a dress for my unborn Christmas baby – even though I know she'll die', Irish Independent, December 1) for her brave sharing of her painful story.
While I understand that every person experiences painful situations in their own way, and many may react differently to Hilary, her intense value for human life shines through her story and heartens me.
When life is valued here at its most fragile, I feel more hope that we are closer to valuing everyone in society as we should.
