Honduras: “Morning-after pill” for rape victims

Honduras will allow the "morning-after pill" for rape victims after more than a decade of total restrictions.

The Central American country's health minister announced on Monday, October 31, even though a total ban on abortion remains in place.

The strictly Catholic República de Honduras introduced an outright ban on the use and sale of the morning-after pill in 2009 but had hinted for several years that it would soften its stance in extreme cases.
