Argentina: Plans to Legalize Abortion on Hold Due to COVID-19

Argentinian President Alberto Fernández’s plans to legalize abortion have stalled amidst the coronavirus pandemic. Fernández had announced earlier this year that legalizing abortion would be the top priority of his new administration and had plans to introduce legislation the last week of March. As attention has rightfully shifted to combatting COVID-19, abortion activists remain focused on it coming to fruition. “Argentina has influence over public opinion in the region,” said Catalina Martínez Coral, the regional director for Latin America and the Caribbean at the Center for Reproductive Rights. “If the bill in Argentina passes, it will influence other countries to start thinking about this.” Abortion groups continue to campaign, specifically Católicas por el Derecho a Decidir (Catholics for the Right to Choose), which seeks to remove religion from the issue of abortion.
