El Salvador abortion ban under international scrutiny from human rights organization


El Salvador abortion ban under international scrutiny from human rights organization
VICE News

Abortion in El Salvador has been criminalized in all circumstances for the past two decades, after the countryâs legislature decreed that life begins at conception. Its restrictive statute holds that pregnancies must be carried to term, regardless if a woman has been raped, if her health or life is at risk, or if the fetus is deformed.âWeâre really excited because we have been waiting for an admission of the case since 2012,â Catalina Martínez Coral, the Centerâs regional director for Latin America and the Caribbean, told VICE News. The Center, working with the Salvadoran advocacy group Agrupación Ciudadana por la Despenalización del Aborto (Citizensâ Coalition for the Decriminalization of Abortion), first filed a petition on behalf of Manuela and her surviving family five years ago.
