Woman Suffering from Severe Illnesses Refused Abortion by El Salvador Supreme Court

Woman Refused Abortion - El Salvador

A critically ill woman has been denied abortion by the Supreme Court of El Salvador; a decision that attracted instant criticism from women's rights and health groups across the world. El Salvador is majorly a Roman Catholic nation; hence, abortions are prohibited legally under all circumstances. In fact, protection of life "from the moment of conception" is a constitutional clause.
