Argentina: Thousands march in Buenos Aires against bill to legalise abortion

4 26.03.2018 Инфо

Thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of Buenos Aires, Sunday, to protest against a bill to legalise abortion for the seventh time.
The protesters marched with placards reading 'No to abortion, you have to take care of both lives' and 'Abortion is murder' through Avenida del Libertador. One of the protesters said that abortion "was not the solution in any case" and that the protesters "are defending life, because we believe that all life is valuable, the unborn child has the right to live, but we are also in favour of the woman and being with her and accompanying her."
This subject has garnered more attention since Argentinian President Mauricio Macri said he was in favour of a debate and would encourage the Congress to vote on it, even if he was said to be anti-abortion.
In Argentina, abortion is only allowed in cases of rape and risk to a woman's health.
