Criminalising abortions in Mexico

Women are being imprisoned for murder after seeking the lawful procedure.

    Mexico is one of only six countries in Latin American and the Caribbean where a woman can obtain a legal abortion.

    But many Mexican states are tightening their laws and imprisoning women for murder.

    Some doctors refuse to perform the procedure, even in cases of rape.
