Over Their Dead Bodies

Human Rights Watch has just released a study on the total denial of access to abortion in Nicaragua. One of only three countries that have a total ban on abortion even in cases of incest and rape (the other two are Chile & El Salvador, can anyone say Catholicism?) this ban is causing deaths even in instances where an a back room abortion has not been done, like in the case of miscarriage and hemmorrhaging.
Read The HRW report & reccomendations here.

Thanks to Feministing for the heads up.
