Our bodies, our rights: end reproductive violence in El Salvador

Human Rights
Date: Monday, 09 April 2018 15:00 - 18:30

Venue: European Parliament  |  City: Ixelles, Belgium

The Constitution in El Salvador foresees the absolute prohibition of abortion. Women who had an abortion, a miscarriage or a stillbirth, are treated like murderers and regularly condemned to up to 35 years or more. Almost all of these women are poor.

In February 2018, Teodora Vázquez was released after ten years in prison. On March 13, 2018, Maira Figueroa came free, also after 10 years. Both were going to stay 35 years in prison. Both are now free, but they are still considered guilty.

This has to change. There are still more than 235 women in prison in El Salvador. All of them should be freed!

When doing this, if not now? The new legislature in El Salvador will start on May 1, 2018. Current legislators have time until then to vote in favour of amendments to the law that are already on the table. Come discuss with us how to get women free and support the changing of the law.
