The Top Seven Toughest Abortion Laws In The World

1. Paraguay

There was a case in Paraguay in 2015 when a 10-year-old girl complained of abdominal pain and turned out to be pregnant from her stepfather who raped her repeatedly. State health authorities denied medical intervention referring to their legal system based on catholic teachings and rules. However, the girl’s mother was imprisoned for not taking enough care of her child. 26 thousand illegal abortions are carried out annually in the country, and girls under 16 are five times more likely to die as a result of abortion.
