Argentina is set to become the first major Latin American country to legalise abortion as President Alberto Fernández has now confirmed that he will send a bill to legalise abortion to Congress within the next 10 days.
In Argentina, abortion is allowed only in cases of rape, or if the mother’s health is in danger, but when the bill is approved, Argentina will become the first largest jurisdiction to legalise the procedure.
Fernandez made the announcement in the National Congress on Sunday, with thousands of people gathered outside, including women brandishing the green handkerchief of abortion rights. Some wiped tears from their eyes during his speech, Aljazeeera reports.
