The awesome ladies from MILES started this petition to ask the parliament of Chile to stop their insanity and allow women (and girls) the right to abort in cases of rape, incest, or where their life is in danger. Chile is one of the few countries where abortion is illegal without exceptions.

(*trigger warning*)

Just on the heels of this awful story, we hear of a 16 year-old who was also repeatedly abused by her step-dad and is pregnant UGGGHHH. The goal for the petition is 5,000 signatures, but I think we can do better, right?

PS (is this a thing in blogging?): I want to thank the awesome Jezebel community for paying attention to the post I wrote out of anger and frustration. I never thought it would be mainpaged so thank you for your recommendations and comments. *hugs the internet*
