Staying Pro Life: Argentinian Senate votes to keep abortion illegal in the country

Argentinian Senate sees Pro Life vote to keep abortion illegal in the country

Abortion is set to remain illegal in Argentina after the country’s upper house scuppered attempts to legalise the termination on demand of the unborn up to 14 weeks gestation, RTE reported.

The bill to bring abortion to the Latin American country passed the House of Representatives but was rejected by a majority of the Senate meaning that the unborn will still enjoy the right to life in Argentina.

The Pro-Abortion Feminist movement NiUnaMenos (“Not one woman less”) in the country has blamed the Catholic Church for the defeat of the bill and Argentinian branch of Amnesty International decried the Senate’s move to protect the life of the unborn as “an unforgivable step backwards” the, UK’s Guardian reports.
