Savita was admitted on Saturday, and everyone agrees she was obviously miscarrying. There was no possibility of a live birth at that point.

The foetus died on the Wednesday, which was an entirely predictable outcome.

So was the ensuing life-threatening septicaemia, and the shift to ICU.

Pretending there are grey areas around this is disingenuous.

Expect religionists to argue that as long as there was a heartbeat there was hope of a miracle.

Nah - they will just argue that killing a dying man is still murder - so killing a dying foetus is still abortion...
