Paper on Abortion and Baby Abandonment
15-year-old schoolgirl, was found at a grotto of the Virgin Mary at Granard, County Longford, where she had gone to give birth in secret. Unwanted Infants are wrapped in plastic and tossed out with the trash, left in dumpsters, dark closets, restrooms, and other horrific places. So why is it that just two are We a Nation? weeks before the people of the Republic went to the polls to give their overwhelming support to marriage equality, a newborn baby with serious hypothermia, umbilical cord still attached, was found crying at the side of a road.

But another day, another news story from home that leaves me sad and incredulous: a young woman prosecuted for taking abortifacient pills; a teenage asylum-seeking rape victim forced to carry to 26 weeks and deliver by C-section; a brain-dead woman kept alive as a cadaveric.

How are we going to create an Ireland in which no woman ever feels that she needs to give birth in secret, in which newborns are not left at the side of roads or in recycling bins? How prevalent is child abaondement?
