Argentina to debate and vote on Abortion Bill

Argentina is on the brink to legalise abortion and if it comes to pass will probably become the first Latin American country to formalize terminations.

The 72-member senate are set to convene this coming Tuesday to debate a bill that was approved by the lower house earlier in December 2020 to the delight of pro-choice activists.

Chances are that Pro-choice and anti-abortion campaigners will gather in the plaza near Buenos Aires’s congress building on Tuesday afternoon and remain there until the early hours of Wednesday when voting takes place.
