Salvadoran Court Releases Woman Wrongfully Imprisoned After Obstetric Emergency

Following 11 years of wrongful imprisonment after suffering an obstetric emergency, the Salvadoran Supreme Court of Justice (CSJ) and the Ministry of Justice and Public Safety commuted a Salvadoran woman’s sentence and released her today. In their decision, the court stated that ‘there are powerful reasons based on justice, equity, and legal concepts that justify favoring her with the grace of commutation.” Although she has been released, her conviction remains.

Following a series of victories blocking the Trump administration’s interim final rules that threaten to curtail access to birth control coverage for thousands of women, the Center for Reproductive Rights and Medical Students for Choice have withdrawn their legal challenge. The move comes after federal courts in Pennsylvania and California blocked the rules as litigation proceeds and after the University of Notre Dame changed its position on contraceptive coverage for its employees and students following the Center for Reproductive Rights’ challenge.
