Pass Automatic Inquests for every maternal death in Ireland as a matter of urgency

Reason for signing

  • The right to life is absolute and the duty to uphold the right is fulfilled in event of death where a hospital may be implicated by holding an inquest. The failure to have systems in place for mandatory inquest into untimely maternal deaths is but another example of Ireland's disregard for international human rights standards. .
