Argentina: President Remains Determined to Legalize Abortion

Argentina's President Alberto Fernandez remains committed to legalizing abortion in the country, despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The president said he has a bill "ready" and is waiting to bring it to Congress. Argentina prohibits abortion except in cases of rape and the life of the mother and child, yet the health ministry of Buenos Aires issued regulations regarding coronavirus that included "guaranteeing integral attention to people with the right to voluntarily interrupt a pregnancy." Bishop Alberto German Bochatey criticized the move, noting the contradiction: "If we defend life now against the virus, we must defend it against any other matter," he said. "If we're making enormous, galactic efforts not to get sick and so that not one life is lost, how can we continue with a project to legalize abortion or euthanasia?"
