Deirdre Conroy: I don't want any other woman to go through the ordeal I endured
THERE are no victors. The likely passing into law of the Protection of Life During Pregnancy Bill is the result of a long and bitterly fought battle for dominion of the womb.
My discovery that women don't actually own their womb began in January 2002. The moment I heard the words "incompatible with life", my own life changed. I remember walking out of the hospital thinking, 'This is what really, really bad news tastes like'.
The worst was yet to come. The silence, the grief.
