In 1998 a referendum to leagalise abortion in Portugal failed. In response, Portuguese artist, Paula Rego, created the Abortion Series (1988), a selection of paintings which draws attention to the dangers of making abortion illegal. The effect of the series was so powerful that it has been credited with helping sway public opinion to form a second referendum in 2007.
