Saints And Sinners

Over 11,000 Portuguese women are hospitalised every year after resorting to back street terminations. Anabela Moriera's sister was just one. She died after drinking bleach in an attempt to end her unwanted pregnancy.  This C4 news feature shows the attempts by Dutch campaigners Women on Waves to help women get around Portugal's anti-abortion laws by transporting patients to international waters to provide the abortion pill.
