“Elsy’s rights were finally restored!” This statement was made by Morena Herrera, the Director, and leader of the activists working on helping Elsy, a woman imprisoned for ten years after suffering a miscarriage. Elsy is an El Salvadorian woman who was sentenced to 30 years of imprisonment after being accused of attempting to abort the child. In El Salvador, just like in 24 other countries worldwide, it is illegal under all circumstances to abort a child regardless of whether it is a danger to the mother or a child conceived of rape or incest.
