Aontú TD Peadar Tóibín, formerly a Sinn Féin deputy, raised the case with Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and said he had spoken to the couple’s solicitor about the case.

“The medical practitioner who signed off on the abortion never examined or met the mother in advance of the abortion. If that is the case, it is contrary to the law brought in by the Government and it is illegal,” Mr Tóibín said.

The couple “claim that their child would be with them today, were it not for the actions of the hospital”, he added.

The Meath TD also said the family was “shocked by allegations that the medical professionals signing off on the abortions have a commercial interest in the companies that produced the fatally insufficient test”.
A court may be asked to put a value on this aborted childs life. though i think that the National Maternity Hospital will settle possibly with a gagging clause to minimize damage to its reputation. "illegal abortions" in our national maternity hospital.??
