Argentina: Legal abortion is closer than ever
In March 2020, Argentina’s President Alberto Fernandez publicly committed to present a bill to Congress to legalise abortion before the year’s end. On 17 November 2020, he fulfilled this commitment by tabling a bill for the legalisation of abortion before the Argentinian Congress. The bill is now subject to congressional debate and voting, which is expected to take place between November 2020 and February 2021. Amnesty International will continue to actively and decisively campaign to ensure both chambers vote in favour of the bill and abortions are finally legal in Argentina.
