Abortion is illegal in Brazil, except in cases where the pregnancy puts the woman’s life in danger or as the result of rape. The punishment for performing an abortion on oneself or consenting to an abortion ranges from one to four years of incarceration. The sentence can be increased, and in some cases doubled, if injury or death results from an abortion. Criminal penalties may be converted to probation and community service. The following BBC videos examine the issue of abortion in Brazil. The last video is a commercial. Think about it.
