The Pro-life movement is accusing the pro-choice activists and the media of exploiting Savita Halappanavar's death for their own purposes

I think it's fair to pose the question of what Savita would have wanted. Judging from her own requests, and husband's actions, it seems pretty likely that she would have been happy for her death to be exploited to push for law changes.
