    Since 1998, abortion has been illegal in El Salvador. Under any circumstances: even when there is risk to the life of the mother. At the same time, there has been a persecution of women suffering from spontaneous abortions or obstetric complications outside the hospital. Between 2000 and 2014 there were more than 250 complaints, 147 women prosecuted and 49 convictions: 26 for murder and 23 for abortion. Laia Abril has approached seventeen women with sentences between 15 and 40 years, accused of homicide after having suffered miscarriages. Their families have been the object of threats and they have suffered all kinds of physical and psychological abuse, both inside and outside the prison. Their social invisibility overlaps with the need to preserve their identity, yet their stories can not be forgotten.
