Teen Angel, Will Travel [For Abortion]

Sky News reports that a pregnant 17-year-old named "Miss D has been in the care of the Health Service Executive (HSE) since March but asked the court to step in and let her travel. On Friday the HSE [...] would not object if the teenager had consent from a district court judge and her mother...."

Of course, this sudden case of the enlightenment came "after health chiefs had initially refused to let her go" and "The High Court in Dublin decided there were no statutory or constitutional grounds for stopping her from travelling to have the operation [abortion]."

How very Catholic of them.
