Brazil: “Abortion is a Right, not a Wrong”

Sapataria [Pt], a Brazilian blog about LGBT and women's rights, posts pictures of a recent protest promoted by gender-issues-related groups against the legal views on abortion in Brazil, and shares their two-cents on the issue: “In many countries, the criminalization of abortion afects directly the poor women, most of them with black skin, who have almost no access to health services and contraceptive methods. […] It's an attempt against the dignity and autonomy of these women, most of them poor, with no access to juridical or psychological suport.”
