Thousands Of Rio De Janeiro Women Protest Proposal To Outlaw Abortion Without Exception In Brazil

Associated Press: Thousands protest proposal for total abortion ban in Brazil
“Thousands of women marched through the streets of Rio de Janeiro on Monday to protest a recent congressional committee vote to make abortion illegal without exception in Brazil. … [T]he congressional committee last week adopted a measure that would remove [the nation’s current exceptions to abortion], provoking widespread outrage though many Brazilians hold conservative views on abortion. … The measure is part of a constitutional amendment, so it would need a super-majority in both Congress’ lower house and the Senate to become law…” (11/14).
