"Yes yeah and guys. I think we've we've we've heard such you know horrible stories of situations of women being so desperate but then you you forget how desperate how desperate can feel if you have no no out in something like this. That's that's hard on the yeah. Yeah it's very hard and so what these activists want is for the system to take on this issue so that women can go to a hospital and can get an abortion in a way that is safe in a way. That is secure again. These are circumstances were basically women. Don't have to be victimized by the circumstances under which they got pregnant rice over. We're talking about someone who got pregnant because of a rape case if then you're telling that person that they cannot get an abortion you are re victimizing them and when it comes to women who are at risk because of their pregnancy. These are some of the cases that have gotten the most attention especially the case of asada whose nickname is has been on cpa so she was the sixteen year old girl that she needed Cancer treatment for leukemia and it was denied by the doctors because she was pregnant and she ended up passing away. Old mundi is holding kepala. Come into your komo. Speranza level center. Is he say sandusky stopping but assad then yellow samya escudo threat amino toco the forensic sequel constitutional when the case of autosound spent on seat. That happened. funder was actually there to speak out about that issue too and we actually have taper for at that time to determine salary with a meeting of yet i inaugurations to media with dr funder said. Is that if it's been on cpa hadn't been pregnant or if she had been a man she would have gotten the treatment that the medical protocol for a case like this is to end the pregnancy in the first trimester so that the patients can get the treatment. This is a case that happens over ten years ago and her mom has been very outspoken to this day about how she says. The system basically took her daughter from her. He is have the we that omitted in jail. And this is actually case that was taken on by the interamerican commission of human rights because even from an international standpoint. It's it's sort of an indictment on the system here coming up.

"Deliverable of sour. They they laugh. Tecos allies against and. Theo is another issue on komo news came bleaker mutual. Stay stamos a mental. They might lose not really he. Also so activists and feminists to the street in that moment to protest and to the man that these three cow stylist be included in the the new penal code. So it's interesting. Because i think people understand that abortion rights are under attack in the united states but basically you're having feminists and their allies and other women say basically. We just want you to say it's okay to get an abortion if there's incest rape or the woman's life is is in danger and even that is a a source for a tremendous amount of activism so in certain countries going ahead and getting an abortion can have some really tough consequences as well for example. Tell us about what happens in el salvador to a woman who wants to get an abortion in el salvador. It's also completely illegal to get an abortion. Under any circumstances the punishment there is harsh. Women can face over thirty years in prison and at least eighteen. Women have actually been prosecuted and imprisoned even though we have this penal code here in dominican republic. They're very few cases that actually get prosecuted by law. Basically the police doesn't really pursue these cases For the most part unlike in salvador however there have been cases the haven't pursued like one of twenty year old woman who was given pain medication and she ended up going to the hospital. Losing the baby and she was taken to trial because she was accused of having an abortion. And it's interesting. Because i was reading the news about what's happening in the united states now and with rovers wade going back into the supreme court. That's essentially what would happen in the. Us what is already happening here. It's that abortion would only be accessible to those who can afford it all right so if you are not wealthy and you need to get an abortion in the dominican republic. Amanda you've been doing reporting on On the ground in the dr. So tell us a little bit about what you learned about what that looks like for women right now. I spoke to colleges. And i spoke to several people who confirmed that getting an abortion. Here is possible but only for women who are able to pay. So when that's up happening. Is that women who live in poverty. Women who are marginalized women who are disenfranchised do not have access to an abortion and this creates a situation of inequality. This is leeann fonder the gynecologist i spoke with i. You need to have the information at it costs money any time because it's not losing who worship if you are twenty five what if you are fifteen is not saying because you don't have spews you don't having for major how to do it as gynecologist. She has attended many teenage girls. Who got pregnant in some cases against their will when it comes to underage girls giving birth data from the national office of statistics show the number of cases of persons under fourteen years old giving birth and they were alarming in the last ten years. There's been thirty. Four thousand three hundred and seven cases in the caribbean dominican republic. Guyana have the highest lesson. Pregnancy numbers is it crime and law to have said child. What is just in the bigger if you are under fifteen your but you also complete human being to to be responsible for other people. It's very difficult for women living in poverty to have an abortion and at times what happens is that women take matters into their own hands and put their own life at risk so the symbol of the batch. Our the hangar was something that was used by artists in during the protest to represent that women use hangers clothing hangers to to perform abortions on themselves. There was a case where a woman hit her stomach with a block of cement a block of concrete in order to induce an abortion. Goodness.

"Pretty particular. They were saying less. Today's cows silas which can basically be translated into the three grounds or the three circumstances. So that's a less three scou- sally's i mean it's like it's it doesn't roll right off of your tongue. I'm trying to think of ever used the word. Gauss silas anywhere in my life in spanish. And i'm like. I don't think i've ever used that word. So kisses to the last three days. Cow sally's yes. So the silence. Which was a word that i've personally gotten very used to saying because i've been in the middle of these protests They're basically three circumstances under which women would be allowed to have an abortion and these are considered sort of the basic circumstances right. So it's when there has been a case of rape or incest when the fetus non non-viable and when the health of the woman is at risk and the thing is my these are considered basic human rights. So it's actually a big deal to have these three cow sally's because in some places you don't have any in other words. Abortion is illegal. No if ands or buts right yes. That's right and one of those places is the dominican republic so in the dominican republic. Right now even if a woman's life is at risk even if there's a case of incest illegal for them to seek an abortion yes yes it's illegal and there have been cases of women and girls who have passed away because they haven't had access to abortion while being at the hospital while doctors know that this could save their life and it's honestly very angering was it's like basic you know it's like the minimum rice so people are not asking for free abortion access. This is rather only under these three cases and it has been very very difficult for feminist activists and women to get these three approved because conservatives and christians have such a strong hold on the government here and that's stronghold on the government isn't new in fact. This law is based on a penal code. That was passed in the year. And so okay. Let me get this right here. This penal code was passed in the year. Eighteen eighty four. And it's still being used. I mean are we serious here. Yes yes we are serious. When i first reported on this story. I'm going to be honest with you. I wrote nine nineteen four. Because i thought that was the right number and then when i was fact checking it blew my mind that it was actually eighteen eighty four. So how does that. Eighteen eighty four penal code. Have anything to do with what's happening now in terms of women and reproductive rights right now the penal code says women can go to prison for up to two years if they have an abortion and up to twenty years for doctors who practice abortions. Wow so what's happening now. Is that the penal code is actually being reviewed by this new government. That was sworn in last year. If you remember the story that we did hear that i spoke to you about the previous ruling party had been in government for about sixteen years and last year. The dominican republic made history when they voted in a new government headed by salvino there during his campaign. He said that he was in favor of the three gosselies. And then when he became president one of the things new government took on was revising the penal code however when they initially presented their reform in congress it did not include the three calls sally's so did the candidate of united make a promise during his campaign to kind of deliver on.
