Abortion ban in El Salvador has women fearful of miscarriage

Published October 14, 2017

In El Salvador, the abortion law is so strict just having a miscarriage can land a woman in jail.

The Central American country 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.

Inroads: the International Network for the Reduction of Abortion Discrimination and Stigma is a global network of advocates, scholars, health providers, and donors interested in program design, research, and advocacy to address abortion stigma and its negative outcomes.

Abortion Law in Australia – The Facts (and Infographic)

Abortion Law in Australia - The Facts

Reproductive Choice Australia has long advocated for abortion to be decriminalised and treated like all other health procedures. We believe health professionals must clearly state a conscientious refusal to provide abortion and ensure women are provided or directed to a service that can support their choice, and that women must be protected from harassment and intimidation at clinics through the effective implementation of access zones.

This infographic shows the legal status of abortion across Australia’s eight jurisdictions. In 2016, campaigns for reform are active in the Northern Territory, New South Wales and Queensland.

Can We Redesign the Way We Talk About Abortion? Meet the Women Behind 5 Very Powerful Design-led Projects

“There’s an intellectual resistance to beauty and good design sometimes—a notion that if something is flashy, there is a lack of seriousness behind it. I object to that.”
Words by Madeleine Morley

Published on June 12th, 2017

What does real freedom to choose look like, even (or especially) in the states and countries where legislation is decidedly pro-choice? And how can graphic design help communicate a more accurate narrative? As the anti-choice movement gains traction, the positive effects that abortion has on millions of lives can get lost, so we spoke with the people behind five projects and platforms where graphic design and visual communication is contributing to the portrayal of abortion as a normal medical procedure and basic human right.
