Human Rights Watch: Argentina: Decriminalize Abortion
“The Argentine Congress should put an end to the country’s criminalization of abortion, which undermines the fundamental rights of women and girls, Human Rights Watch said … The House of Representatives will vote on a proposal to ease abortion rules on June 13, 2018. … ‘With the vote in Congress, Argentina can join the global trend toward expanding legal grounds to allow abortion and affirming the rights and dignity of women and girls,’ [José Miguel Vivanco, Americas director at HRW,] said” (6/12).
