SAN SALVADOR, EL SALVADOR - A Salvadoran woman jailed for 30 years for a miscarriage deemed to be an illegal abortion on Friday pleaded for her freedom before a court revising her sentence.
"I am paying for a crime I didn't commit," Teodora Vasquez, 34, told the tribunal in San Salvador.
Judges hearing the matter adjourned the hearing until next Wednesday.
