Choice rally: Savita's death must be last

A RALLY has been held in Derry in support of the family of Savita Halappanavar.

Several dozen people attended the Guildhall Square rally, many of them holding white flowers because white is the Hindu colour of mourning.

A spokesperson for Alliance For Choice – which organised the rally – said the people of Ireland owed it to Savita and her family to make sure no other woman died in similar circumstances.

"Savita's husband Praveen has asked for action to ensure she is the last woman who dies because of uncertain laws," the spokesperson said.
