Name new law after Savita

Madam – Ireland and the world share a deep sadness at the recent tragic death of Savita Halappanavar. Whatever new legislation follows on from this case must be called Savita's Law in memory of this lady.

Higgins caught up in hysteria

Madam – Is there anyone in Fianna Fail man enough to call President Higgins a "thundering disgrace"? Surely when the President says he is speaking for the Irish people, he is out of line.

How can anyone speak in this manner when there is no truth yet confirmed?

There is an investigation into the lady's sad death, under way. There are facts not yet established, and for Michael D to get caught up in the hysteria is disgraceful. Calm down, everyone.
