A woman known as “Beatriz” made headlines around the world when her baby was delivered by Caesarean section so she could avoid an abortion in El Salvador, where it’s illegal. Monica Roa, program director for Women’s Link Worldwide, explains why she thinks this case may set a precedent for future cases that might come before the Inter-American Court.
