    This is a well written article that captures many of the issues regarding abortion. It is sad that in a poor country such as Brazil where most people cant afford birth control abortions are illegal. This is no way to help improve the economic situation for the very large poor population.

    Thank you for this article. The situation in Brazil should bring attention to similar situations in other South and Central American countries. In Bolivia, for example, abortion is completely illegal, even when the health and life of the mother is at risk. The number of unsafe abortions in Bolivia is incredibly high and women who attempt to have an abortion are often thrown in jail. It is a problem that affects primarily poor women. Worse, due to the influence of the Catholic church in Bolivia, NO ONE will even discuss the issue – not the media, the government, etc. – even though it is a serious public health issue there.

    I totally disagree with all of the incorrect and abusive language that Mrs. Levinson uses. I think she lacks proper information on the topic because I’m a Brazilian citizen and you have not been part of this experience. She may have worked hard. –

    I didn’t see anything abusive. What were you referring to? And if she is giving out incorrect information, I want to hear about it. I always want to hear all the facts about any issue before deciding what I think. What was incorrect?
    Um….I’m afraid I don’t understand what you meant by your last sentence. “She may have worked hard?” Huh?
    Also, why assume that Levinson’s a Mrs. and not a Miss or a Ms.? This is pretty much a feminist site. We’re big on Ms. here, since it’s nobody’s business if a woman is married or not. Men don’t have ridiculous labeling based on marital sate. Why should we?
