El Salvador Lawmakers Must Work Quickly To Pass Legislation To Legalize Abortion In Some Cases, Advocates Say

The Guardian: ‘It’s time-critical’: the race to overturn abortion ban in El Salvador
“Moves to overturn El Salvador’s ban on abortion could be thwarted unless lawmakers work quickly to push through changes before a more conservative group assumes office in May. … [A] bill proposed last August would legalize abortion in some cases. Salvadoran legislative deputies serve three years, and if the bill does not pass in the next month, it is doubtful the issue will be taken up by the incoming conservative majority. The total ban on abortion came into force in 1998…” (Welsh, 4/3).
