Mexican Government to Compensate Woman Denied an Abortion after Rape

It is reported that Mexico’s government will offer a financial settlement to a woman who was raped at 13 and then denied an abortion in violation of Mexican law. "This is the most important legal victory for women in Mexico in a decade," said Luisa Cabal of the Center for Reproductive Rights, a New York-based rights group. "It is the first time a Latin American government has acknowledged that access to legal abortion is a human right."  Source:  Marion Lloyd, Houston Chronicle, chron.com.
