Argentina way Legalise abortion

Argentine President Alberto Fernandez announced on Twitter on Tuesday he was bringing a new bill on legalising abortion to Congress, re-opening a debate that has bitterly divided the traditionally Catholic South American nation.

Fernandez announced in a video message on his Twitter account, saying the bill would ensure “that all women have access to the right to comprehensive health care.”

Argentine society is divided over the question of abortion.

Congress historic debate in 2018 under then-president Mauricio Macri that ended with the Chamber of Deputies voting to legalize abortion, only for the Senate to reject it.

Fernandez promised in March to present new bill,legalise abortion but that was put on hold when the country went into lockdown over the coronavirus.

Fernandez, who ousted Macri in elections last year, said a separate bill would help poorer families to avoid having to resort to abortion for economic reasons. 

That would provide “a 1,000-day insurance policy, with the aim of strengthening comprehensive care during pregnancy and for children in the first years of life.”
