Senators in Argentina are debating whether or not to legalize the abortion in all cases up to 14 weeks of pregnancy.
Currently, it is only possible if the fetus is deformed, the woman has been raped or if the woman’s life is in danger. But despite that, an estimated half a million women have illegal terminations every year. Will Argentina legalize abortion? If not, why? And where does this leave women there and elsewhere in the region?
