Argentina’s Senate has voted to legalize elective abortion up to the 14th week, in a groundbreaking decision that delivers a huge win for reproductive rights activists.
The vote was 38 to 29 in favour, with one abstention, a strong victory considering that the vote had been too close to call in the days leading up to it.
Argentina, with a population of 45 million, is now the largest country to legalise elective abortion in Latin America, a region with some of the strictest anti-abortion laws in the world.
