Abortion ban in El Salvador has women fearful of miscarriage
BY CGTN America
In El Salvador, the abortion law is so strict that just having a miscarriage can land a woman in jail.
The Central American country is one of only three countries in the world that criminalize abortion without exception and has some of the toughest anti-abortion laws in the world. 
Since 1998, any pregnant woman who loses her unborn child can be accused of homicide.
Abortion is banned under any circumstance in the country and women are petrified of having a problematic pregnancy.
The controversy surrounding the law has been revived by the recent case of Evelyn Hernandez, sitting in jail for the death of her unborn child.
Evelyn’s case and those of sixteen others facing similar charges are currently under appeal. But few expect changes to come anytime soon to the country’s uncompromising abortion law.
