Income Inequality Limits Reproductive Rights Of Women In Latin America, BBC Reports

BBC News: How inequality limits reproductive rights in Latin America
“…In five countries abortion is outlawed completely and heavy restrictions such as those in Paraguay are in place across the region. But this is not just an issue of competing liberal norms and conservative values. It is mainly about inequality in a region where the gulf between rich and poor remains huge. To access abortions, you either have to have the money to pay for illegal procedures or the funds to fly out of the country…” (Watson, 5/12).
