MAIL AND GUARDIAN: Women refugees take contraceptives in fear of rape

Women refugees fleeing wars, political instability and poverty are taking contraceptives in the expectation of being raped but are so desperate they still embark on the journey, a human rights group said on Wednesday. Women and girls who risk sexual violence as they flee their home countries are getting contraceptive injections as a precautionary measure, said researcher Hillary Margolis of the New Yorkbased Human Rights Watch.
