The Wider Image: Polarizing Brazil election forces women off the fence
International relations student Adriana Ribas, 28, who is against Brazil's presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro, poses for a portrait in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, October 12, 2018. "We urgently need to address the matter of abortion as a public health issue in Brazil. Women are already dealing with countless illegal abortions, because the state doesn't provide safe, quality services … (I hope for) more public policies to support women … and criminalize homophobia."

A woman holds a candlelit vigil outside University Hospital Galway in Galway, Ireland November 15, 2012. Ireland's government on Thursday pledged to clarify its abortion laws after a woman, who was denied a termination, died from septicaemia in an Irish hospital. Thousands held a candle-lit vigil outside parliament on Wednesday after news broke of the death of Savita Halappanavar, an Indian Hindu, following a miscarriage 17 weeks into her pregnancy. Activists in Ireland, an overwhelmingly Roman Catholic country which has some of the world's most restrictive laws on abortion, say a lack of legal clarity about when terminations are justified may have contributed to her death.

An Indian woman walks past a Bollywood film poster "Matrubhoomi" in New Delhi July 13, 2005. "Matrubhoomi" is a wakeup call in a country plagued by two of the most horrific crimes against women: infanticide and female foeticide. Experts say the number of women dropped to 933 for every 1,000 men in 2001 from 941 in 1961, largely because of a long history of infanticide and more recently, sex selective abortions. Sex determination tests are illegal but common, and many families abort female foetuses to avoid huge dowries later. Picture taken on July 13, 2005. TO ACCOMPANY FEATURE INDIA FOETICIDE.

Santiago, Chile - Republic of
REAL AND SILICON FETUSES IN MARMELADE JARS FOR ART EXHIBITION.
A five-month old fetus (L) and two silicon fetuses are displayed in
jars with a sticker reading "Bottled in Chile," at an underground art
gallery in Santiago, in this photo taken January 23, 2003. Chilean
artist Luis Verdejo has put four real and several silicon fetuses in
jars to make a statement on abortion in Chile. Abortion is illegal in
all circumstances, including rape and incest, nevertheless it is
estimated that 400,000 illegal abortions are performed every year.
Verdejo originally planned to exhibit the fetuses in an underground art
gallery, which the courts ordered to close on sanitary grounds. Verdejo
finally set up the display outdoors. REUTERS/Claudia Daut
