LEBANON – Abortion is illegal in Lebanon, but that hasn’t stopped abortions

A political cartoon story about women in Lebanon, including Syrian refugee women – and the fact that abortions have always been necessary and always will be. It reports that the NGO Marsa has stepped in to provide basic information, and The A Project, created in November 2016, to provide a sexuality and sexual and reproductive health hotline. A third of the phone calls The A Project hotline receives are about unwanted pregnancy.
