Dear Ambassador,

We, and the 32,904 undersigned, write to ask that you pass along our names to the office of President Mauricio Funes and the Supreme Court of Justice of El Salvador in support of the human rights, health and life of Beatriz, whose case is now before the court.

We’re writing to insist that they allow Beatriz’ doctors to perform an abortion to save her life, to say that they must act to spare this young woman with her whole life ahead of her and so much yet to do.

Beatriz is a human being with human rights, and the right to enjoy her future, her freedom, and her family. Denying her life-saving medical care is unacceptable. Act now to allow her doctors do their duty to try and save their patient without fear of imprisonment.

Yours sincerely,

Jodi Jacobson
President, RH Reality Check
Petition to the President and Supreme Court of El Salvador

Save Beatriz’s Life and Allow Her Abortion!
