....In Brazil, where doctors have seen 4,000 cases of babies born with microcephaly in the past four months, abortion is already illegal — aside from rare cases of rape, anencephaly (a more extreme version of microcephaly, where a baby often dies in infancy), or when the mother’s life is in danger. Currently, if a woman is found to have had an abortion, she is sentenced to no more than three years in prison. But under this new legislation, if a court found the case to be based on microcephaly, a woman can spend up to four-and-a-half years behind bars. And for doctors that administer the abortion? They could face a 15 year sentence.

Those backing this bill say that the Zika virus has unfairly loosened the country’s acceptance of abortion, and feminist groups are to blame.

This kind of thing Is happening after the election of the most conservative congress ever.

After 4 “terms” of a substantially left/populist government being acclaimed responsible for everything that happened on the country, the economy is no longer growing as it used to 10 years ago. This brings to the heads of a badly educated people that, now, the answer for all Latin American problems relay on the other side of a fallacious two-sided political world: the conservative right.

Swimming deep on corruption, cartoonish rightist congress-men (together with not less corrupt leftist rulers) are now leading every kind of absurd initiatives. Some are like giving property-tax exemption to churches…

Its becoming very hard to find a solution to Zika in here, and it will for sure be leaded or guided by the state.
