August 11, 2011: European Women's Lawyer's Association writes letter to President Obama requesting him to issue an Executive Order lifting the US abortion restrictions on USAID.
Chilean Health Minister Dr. Jaime Menalich Muxi responds to a letter from the GJC requesting that he allow an 11-year-old rape victim to have a life-saving abortion. This letter states that though the pregnancy is risky, he cannot grant her an abortion because it is against the law. This is the original, untranslated copy of the letter the Chilean Health Minister sent in reply to the GJC.
