Urge El Salvador to End the Ban on Abortion

Many women and girls are dying or being imprisoned due to the total ban on abortion in El Salvador. Women who miscarry have been accused of homicide and even rape victims are denied a termination. For the first time since 1998 there’s a chance to overturn the archaic law causing unnecessary pain and suffering for thousands of women and children.

Salvadoran lawmakers will soon debate changes to this law. At this crucial moment, call on them to support the reformed laws that will respect, protect and fulfil the rights of women and girls.

Take action today! 

Update #11 years ago
While Salvadoran legislators have, for months, been postponing the debate on the Criminal Code reform that would decriminalize abortion, a 19-year-old rape survivor has been sentenced to 30 years' imprisonment for having suffered pregnancy-related complications. Please share this petition far and wide to push for an end to the abortion ban in El Salvador.
