Just days before the Honduran congress is set to approve a law that would imprison women for using the morning-after pill, even after being raped, women in Honduras have mobilized hundreds of thousands of supporters around the world to sign on to a petition calling on the President of Congress to stand up for women’s rights and reject the law. In February, the Honduran Supreme Court upheld a 2009 ban on emergency contraception pills (ECP), after a campaign by conservative religious groups that equated ECP with abortion. Many JASS allies and staff joined the feminist movement in Honduras in organizing a demonstration in front of the congress in early 2012 and are leading new actions in May.
