BRAZIL: Finadas do Aborto

Abortion is not a question for the police, it is a question of health and rights

Finadas do Aborto

Above is a photograph from a demonstration in Rio de Janeiro organised by the young people’s group Finadas do Aborto, which literally means ‘dead from abortion’. In the demonstration, they carried tombs with the names of women who had died from complications of unsafe abortion and placed them in a public square.
