Prisons are filled with women who have fallen pregnant whilst unmarried, often due to abuse. Many are migrant domestic workers, particularly vulnerable and often trapped in the UAE by a law which forbids them from leaving the country without permission. This shocking report exposes the hidden persecution of vulnerable women sentenced under UAE law, their pregnancy used as evidence of their crime. "A women can't have a child with someone she loves. If my family found out they'd slaughter me", explains Hessa, who got pregnant out of wedlock and was forced to have an illegal abortion. In the UAE, sex outside marriage is not just a cultural taboo but a serious criminal offence, and for many women, pregnancy is used as proof of their guilt. If found guilty, women face lengthy jail terms and even flogging. Both alarming and incredibly moving, Pregnant and in Chains exposes the horrific human rights violations of one of the world's richest nations; shedding light on the personal tragedies at the heart of the UAE's brutal legal system.
