A protest is planned in London today calling for a immediate change to Ireland's abortion law. It follows the death of Savita Halappanavar who was denied an abortion in Galway.

Sarah Wrack, Socialist Women (England/Wales), says:

"Savita's death has ignited an existing anger at the horrific situation facing women in Ireland."

On Wednesday night protesters gathered outside the Irish embassy on Grosvenor Place. Another protest has been organised there at 4pm today.
