Behind the Scenes of “Love, Labor, Loss”

Obstetric fistula is not just a women's issue, and not just about the developing world. It is about our inability to prioritize people's lives and about legislation that restricts funding based on political battles. And it reflects a sense of complacency towards striving for social equality and progress.
