Women and girls are dying and being subjected to obscene prison sentences thanks to the total ban on abortion in El Salvador. Girls like Evelyn (pictured) — a teenage rape survivor who has just been jailed for 30 years for suffering a miscarriage. 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.
