GOOD NEWS! Beatriz is recovering -- your activism worked! to save a pregnant mother whose Life

GOOD NEWS!  Beatriz is recovering -- your activism worked! to save a pregnant mother whose LIFE was threatened by El Salvadoran laws criminalizing all abortion--a medical procedure she needed to prevent imminent kidney failure.  Please notice the wonderful get-well photos & messages globally from men & women alike -- I liked especially the "Heart Full of People" --12th pix from the top posted 3 hrs. ago.
[In the future, let us hope & work toward No Woman EVER again having to through such a costly, inhumane, degrading, humiliating & life threatening ordeal as Beatriz has had -- in order to protect what is rightfully hers--Her Life.
. . . And remember. . . YOUR voice DOES make a difference!

Amnesty International
Dear Daniel,Thank YOU for standing up to demand health care for Beatriz, a pregnant mother in El Salvador who could have died after being denied life-saving treatment. Beatriz finally received treatment yesterday. You, along with hundreds of thousands of activists around the globe, created critical public pressure. Your messages, tweets, solidarity photos and activism pushed officials to save her life -- and they meant the world to Beatriz, her family, and those in El Salvador campaigning tirelessly on her behalf. Beatriz is now recovering. Add your well wishes to the #SaveBeatriz photo stream.This appalling situation should never have occurred in the first place: no one should be subjected to cruel, inhumane or degrading treatment when attempting to access medical treatment necessary for their life or health. This is one of the reasons why Amnesty International has launched My Body My Rights, a global campaign focused on sexual and reproductive health rights. Beatriz's human rights were violated at every step. Let her know you care by sending a "get well" message and stay tuned for future My Body My Rights campaigning opportunities. In solidarity,Cristina FinchManaging Director Women's Human Rights Program
