Ben Zand investigates the controversial case of Evelyn Hernandez, a Salvadoran teenager raped by a gang member and then jailed for 30 years for what her supporters say was a miscarriage. El Salvador has some of the harshest abortion laws in the world, with all forms of abortion being punished and cases of miscarriages and still births often being considered abortions. Women can be sentenced for up to 40 years for having one. In the case of Evelyn, her supporters say she has been wrongly imprisoned after having a miscarriage, with her opponents on the other side saying she killed her child. Ben speaks to the people who know the case best.
