Parents Of Savita Halappanavar Call For 'Yes' Vote
Savita Halappanavar's parents have called on people to vote Yes to repeal the Eighth Amendment on Friday.
Savita died six years ago at University Hospital Galway due to the complications of a septic miscarriage at 17 weeks' gestation.
In a video released by Together For Yes this morning, Savita's father Andanappa Yalagi said he strongly feels "that the younger daughters of Ireland should not have the fate of Savita".
