LEAKING PATIENT DETAILS WRONG.
Women who require abortions in our care wards need to know their details are not going to be splashed across newspapers.
It's a sensitive time and they shouldn't have to worry about their personal facts becoming public knowledge.
It's fair to say the media depends on whistle-blowers to lift the lid on scandals.
But in this instance you have to question the reason why the information was revealed as it served no purpose but only highlighted that an abortion had allegedly taken place.
It suggests the person who leaked the information clearly had an agenda of their own.
Hopefully the hospital's inquiry will find who was behind it.
The discussions surrounding the Protection of Life During Pregnancy Act were divisive but the law has been passed.
Women needing terminations should be left alone.
The leaking of their details is unacceptable and could put women off receiving vital care.
It emerged yesterday the details of the abortion printed in a newspaper were wrong.
It never took place at Holles Street but the dangerous thing about this case is any details were leaked.
Trauma... women need privacy
