The father of Savita Halappanavar has urged Ireland's prime minister to change the country's abortion laws.
Andanappa Yalagi said altering the legislation would "save the lives of so many women in the future".
In an interview with the Observer, he directly addressed Taoiseach Enda Kenny, saying:
– Andanappa Yalagi
Sir, please change your law and take consideration of humanity.
Please change the law on abortion, which will help to save the lives of so many women in the future.
We want the government of India to put pressure on Ireland to change the law so that this cannot happen in the future.
Mr Yalagi revealed that he is also considering legal action against the hospital.
