A seriously ill woman in El Salvador was denied an abortion by the country's Supreme Court on Thursday due to their strict anti-abortion laws, even when both mother and child are in fatal danger. Due to worldwide uproar, El Salvador's health minister has announced that the woman wil be granted a Caesarean section that could save her life. Unfortunately, her unborn child suffers from an illness that leaves hardly any chance for survival.
