Women have paid a terrible price for a law that gives the unborn the same rights as mothers
Itâ€™s a bugger when your flight is cancelled. Itâ€™s worse, I imagine, if youâ€™re having to travel to another country to have an abortion. Time and money matter. When I saw that the recent snow had grounded flights from Ireland I immediately thought of this. Maybe I have never forgotten the time I sat next to an anxious young woman on a flight from Dublin who began to tell me why she was coming to London but couldnâ€™t finish her sentences. She was just so alone that I wanted to go to the clinic with her. In the old days I remember seeing such women on the ferries.
