Demonstrators shout slogans outside the Congress during a rally in support the draft law of the Chilean government which seeks to legalize abortion, in Valparaiso, August 4, 2015. President Michelle Bachelet's push to relax strict abortion laws in socially conservative Chile has created a rift inside her ruling coalition and key elements of the reform are likely to be scratched. Bachelet's proposals would allow an abortion if a mother's life is in danger, if a fetus is unviable or when a pregnancy is a result of rape. The banner reads: "We support the abortion for 3 causes: (L-R) The risk of the life and health of women, Fetal non-viability outside the womb, For rape". REUTERS/Rodrigo Garrido

A woman holds a candlelit vigil outside University Hospital Galway in Galway, Ireland November 15, 2012. Ireland's government on Thursday pledged to clarify its abortion laws after a woman, who was denied a termination, died from septicaemia in an Irish hospital. Thousands held a candle-lit vigil outside parliament on Wednesday after news broke of the death of Savita Halappanavar, an Indian Hindu, following a miscarriage 17 weeks into her pregnancy. Activists in Ireland, an overwhelmingly Roman Catholic country which has some of the world's most restrictive laws on abortion, say a lack of legal clarity about when terminations are justified may have contributed to her death.
