prison term for miscarriage

A friend sent this along in email:
Last week, a young woman in El Salvador who goes by the alias name of 'Guadalupe,' had very high hopes, and was all but assured she would receive a pardon from her 30-year sentence. She had already served seven years, starting in her teens. Her alleged crime? Fetal homicide. She miscarried, and was charged with murder.
Even without fleshing out the Daily Kos entry, the medieval nightmarishness of the story is compelling.
