Argentina’s Senate has passed a landmark abortion bill, becoming the fourth country in Latin America to legalise the practice.
The Senate voted by 38 in favour to 29 against with one abstention to approve a bill allowing the procedure through the 14th week of pregnancy, bucking the traditionally strong influence of the Catholic Church in the region.
