Forensic Vaginal Inspectors

If you have a free half hour or so, go read this nine page article from the NY Times about the draconian abortion laws in El Salvador and one woman's experiences.

El Salvador, however, has not only a total ban on abortion but also
an active law-enforcement apparatus - the police, investigators,
medical spies, forensic vagina inspectors and a special division of
the prosecutor's office responsible for Crimes Against Minors and
Women, a unit charged with capturing, trying and incarcerating an
unusual kind of criminal. Like the woman I was waiting to meet.


But if you don't have a free half hour, just ponder for a few moments what a "forensic vaginal inspector" is and what they might do in the course of a day's work. And then think about what you can do to help keep abortion in the U.S. safe, legal and available.
