Colombia: Sentence T-532/2014. The claimant, D.D., requested an abortion on the grounds of risk to her health and life, arguing that the pregnancy was affecting her psychological health and that she did not have the financial resources to maintain another child (at the time, she had a six-year-old daughter). Her health care provider failed to offer efficient and timely services. The Constitutional Court urged Congress to issue a regulation establishing a maximum period for studying and approving abortion requests.
