LATIN AMERICA – Muerte o Carcel: Persecución y Sanción por Aborto

This publication looks at cases in six countries in the region – Argentina, El Salvador, Colombia, Peru, Dominican Republic and Mexico – where pregnancy may just as well have been the result of forced sex or when abortion was spontaneous, not induced.
