He says that, having been told she was miscarrying, and after one day in severe pain, Ms Halappanavar asked for a medical termination.This was refused, he says, because the foetal heartbeat was still present and they were told, "this is a Catholic country".She spent a further 2½ days "in agony" until the foetal heartbeat stopped.~*!*~*!*~*!*~*!*~*!*~*!*~*!*~*!*­~*!*~SUBSCRIBE to Ora TV's YouTube Channel for more NewsBreaker videosFACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/pages/NewsBre... http://twitter.com/newsbreakerTUMBLR: http://nboratv.tumblr.com/STORIFY: http://storify.com/newsbreakerCHECK OUT our homepage: http://www.ora.tv/newsbreaker
