El Salvador is a densely populated country in Central America where there is a Rich elite while the majority of people live in extreme Poverty. El Salvador suffered Civil war during the 20th Century and many natural disasters. Organised crime is rampant there. [1]

El Salvador shares a border Honduras, and Guatemala and also has a coast on the Pacific Ocean. El Salvador was colonized by Spain, so Spanish is spoken there and the nation is Roman Catholic.


In El Salvador if a woman miscarries it's assumed she deliberately induced an abortion or could have saved the baby. Women who didn't know they were pregnant or who couldn't have prevented a miscarriage face long prison terms. [2][3] Prison sentences are being increases. [4]
