In Argentina, senators voted to pass a bill on the right to abortion for women. 38 senators voted in favor of the law, 29 - against, one more abstained, writes "BBC". Until now, Argentina has had one of the strictest laws regarding abortion. Until now, abortion has only been permitted in cases of rape or when a woman’s health is in danger. The Catholic Church demanded that lawmakers reject the bill, but President Alberto Fernandez supported him. He motivated his assertion that abortion should be included in a free health program by the fact that 38,000 women are admitted to hospitals every year after an illegal termination of pregnancy. Now supporters of the legalization of reproductive choice for women celebrate victory in the struggle for their right to make decisions about their prospects. Also, in parallel with the law on the legalization of abortion, a law was passed on the provision of quality medical care for pregnant women and mothers with small children. Two years ago, senators, examining a similar bill, voted against the legalization of abortion. In the spring, the Russian Orthodox Church proposed to ban abortions in Russia during the pandemic, and now it is actively campaigning to remove abortion from the compulsory medical insurance scheme.
