Honduras bans morning-after pills

Dan Zeidler, an expert on life-issues in Latin America, reports that Honduras in central America has banned morning-after pills. Spanish-speaking readers can see a slightly blurred copy of the decree here.

Dan writes: "In early June of this year, many of you very generously responded to the request of pro-life leadership in Honduras to send a letter to then president of the Congress of Honduras, Roberto Micheletti, urging Honduras to prohibit the morning-after pill. I am writing to let you know that as of a few days ago ... the morning-after pill is prohibited in Honduras. Congratulations especially to Martha Casco who has spearheaded this effort in Honduras!"

I blogged about Ms Casco in April. A recent news-source describes her as the country's deputy foreign minister.
