But I acknowledge it could also reduce women's worth as a women as we are so much more than that.

That was case X wasn't it? I didn't think they overturned it? I could be wrong though. I used to live in Ireland for years, and was there for the referendum about if a woman is at severe risk of self harm or suicide because of pregnancy should she be able to terminate and it was voted down by a huge number. So embarrassing. And probably the main reason I would never live in Ireland again. I don't like the thought of not having control over my own body.
It wasn't really about termination laws, it was really about the crappy care given by the hospital that had absolutely nothing to do with whether or not termination was legal.
The inquest report identified three key factors for her death
1) inadequate assessment and monitoring
2) failure to offer all management options to a patient (which is what the termination comes under)
3) non adherence to clinical guidelines related to the prompt and effective management of sepsis.

I don't care one iota if other women don't mind being called incubators (and don't deny some of you had an endearment with your partners regarding the term), but I dislike pregnant women (and any other animal!) being described as incubators!! An incubator is an artificial environment, used in labs and other. As far as I know, an incubator can not grow a full-term human/mammal baby from scratch! I am a creator or a small, amazing little marvel of nature, not an incubator!
