When posters with the words "License To Kill" were put up in her neighborhood in advance of Ireland's referendum on abortion, Amy Callahan decided to share the story of traveling to Britain to terminate her pregnancy. Callahan, 35, and her partner Connor Upton were told 12 weeks into her pregnancy that the fetus had anencephaly, a rare condition that prevents the normal development of the brain. In Ireland, where abortions are permitted only when the mother's life is in danger, the couple could either wait until their baby's heart stopped beating or go to Britain for an abortion, as more than 3,000 Irish women do each year.Callahan and her husband told few people about that trip, nearly a year ago.
