El Salvador: Separated families, Broken Ties: Women imprisoned for obstetric emergencies and the impact on their families
1998 was a watershed moment for women’s human rights in El Salvador. This was the year that the government decided to take a retrograde step. While most countries around the world were moving towards a liberalization of restrictive laws on abortion, El Salvador moved to criminalize abortion in all circumstances. The repercussions of the criminalization of abortion in all circumstances in El Salvador have far-reaching consequences which extend beyond the individual accused and impact directly on the lives and the familial ties of their relatives.
