A new political opportunity is presenting itself in the long struggle for the right to voluntary abortion, for the sake of health, equality and dignity. We urge the National Congress to do its share in expanding the sexual rights of millions of persons and make history.
As the hearings begin in Luz Aimé’s trial, we at CELS join the campaign for her absolution. The case has been marked by discrimination based on her travesti identity wich lead to a change in charges based on an exagerated hypothesis that cannot be substantiated by facts. The deficiency of the justice system ends up putting innocent people in prison, leaves the victims of offenses without reparation while offenders remain unpunished.
