First of all thank you very much for your email. I fully support the need for the legislation on the X case and have done so for some time.
Last April legislation was presented to the Dail to bring in this law which I voted For. I believe this is twenty years overdue.
As recently as November 14th I raised the matter directly with Enda Kenny at the order of business in the Dail.
Here is a link to a statement I released yesterday following the tragic death of Savita which is a tragedy which should never have happened – http://www.patricknulty.ie/?p=1532
I also requested that the issue be debated in the Dail yesterday which forced the Minister for Health to come in and explain himself.
I believe that it is a disgrace that 20 years on this matter has not been addressed and is it is a fundamental issue of equality for women. I will do everything in my power to campaign for change on this crucial issue.
