Update on Beatriz and abortion in El Salvador

The Minister of Health, Maria Isabel Rodriguez, in a brave stance against a ruling by El Salvador's highest court stated that she was determined to save Beatriz's life in any way possible, including induced labor. A c-section is due to be scheduled this week to save Beatriz's life; however, the law remains and many more women like Beatriz will continue to be subjected to what is the equivalent of a death sentence.

Thank You

Thank you for the update. Estoy muy pendiente de las noticias saliendo de El Salvador, cruzando los dedos para que prevalezca la justicia y la sensatez. Muchos cariños para ti y tu país....

A c-section was performed this afternoon and Beatriz is recovering in the hospital. The media is having a field day with headlines "BABY DIED" with photos of babies in a nursery:
