Cruel & unusual punishment for being in a tragic situation

So this is what anti-abortion laws look like.

A young woman in El Salvador, married with a toddler, is apparently seriously ill. She has lupus and a kidney malfunction, exacerbated by the fact she is pregnant... with a non-viable foetus. Several scans have shown conclusively that the foetus is anencephalic. The chances are high that she won't survive giving birth, and the child will inevitably die shortly after birth.

This is so 'pro'-life. Potentially kill a woman, widow her husband & leave a child motherless for the sake of what exactly?

Updated: The El Salvador Health Minister has stepped in to allow a caesarian section.
