Even in the middle of the night, Irina Percara’s phone is always on full volume. She never knows when she’ll need to be reached.
Irina, 24, is one of 450 activists that form Las Socorristas en Red, a network of feminist groups across Argentina that guide women through abortions using misoprostol, a drug that safely terminates pregnancies during the first trimester.
“We help women who need abortions do it without guilt, without judgment, and without putting their health and safety at risk,” the activist told the Times.
