Teresa Sales, 53 was born in Lisbon but now lives in Costa da Caparica, Almada. She is graduated in Art History and works in the social security administration also doing some work on politics. She had one of the few situations that the Portuguese law allows to have a legal abortion because when she got pregnant she realized that the child would be severely handicapped because of a medicine she took several years before. Without having any hospital prepared to do the abortion, she had to go to the illegal clinics and do it at her own costs, she has a daughter who works with her in the promotion of the equal rights for women, were legal abortion is one of their causes.
