Abortion in Italy: ‘I found a grave with my name on it’

There was an outcry in Italy after dozens of women who had had an abortion or miscarriage from the 20th week of pregnancy discovered that the fetus, unbeknownst to them, had been religiously buried in a grave marked with the woman’s name.

The invasion of privacy became known after a woman, Marta Loi, an atheist, shared a photo of the tomb she discovered. The struggle of many Italian women for access to abortion in Italy, which was legalized there in 1978, is coming back into focus.
