It is stories like this that remind me I am truly blessed just by simply being a mother in the western world.

How on earth can you be jailed for suffering a miscarriage or giving birth to a still born baby? All because it can be linked to draconian laws on murder and abortion. This is what is happening to women in El Salvador. At a time of tragedy and pain women are facing further punishment and being thrown in jail for up to 40 years.

There is the case of Evelyn Beatriz Hernandez Cruz a teenager who was raped and suffered a miscarriage. She is currently serving a 30 year prison sentence. I have no words, I am in total disbelief. The Mirror have reported on the story for more information.
