The documentary “The history of all us women” collects the story of three Salvadorian women who saw their fundamental rights violated when they were accused of a crime of abortion and finally imprisoned for aggravated homicide, when in out-of-hospital deliveries they lost their babies.
In 1998, El Salvador reformed the Criminal Code to penalize abortion with prison sentences between 2 and 8 years. However, in the alleged cases of voluntary interruptions of pregnancy, women are sentenced for aggravated homicide, with sentences of between 30 and 40 years in prison.
This is the story of Elsi, Cinthia and Mariana. But it could be that of many others and that of us.
