DOMINICAN REPUBLIC: Give Dying Teen Chemo!

A pregnant teenager is needlessly dying of leukemia in the Dominican Republic. The 16-year-old needs aggressive chemotherapy which would probably terminate her pregnancy while giving her a shot at survival.

But because of the nation’s complete ban on abortion, doctors are withholding treatment.

Tell Dominican Republic President Leonel Fernandez to issue an emergency exception to the law and allow the young woman to have chemotherapy — before it’s too late!
