Amid Zika Epidemic, Women’s Groups Set To Challenge Brazil’s Abortion Law In Country’s Supreme Court

The Guardian: Zika emergency pushes women to challenge Brazil’s abortion law
“Women’s groups in Brazil are set to challenge the abortion laws this summer in the hope of making a safe and legal termination possible for women at risk of delivering a baby born with defects after exposure to the Zika virus. … Lawyers for the organizations will present a legal challenge at the supreme court in the first week of August, when the court sits again after the winter break. They are coordinated by Anis Instituto de Bioética, which campaigns for women’s equality and reproductive rights…” (Boseley, 7/19).
