Argentina’s Senate has voted to legalize abortion – in a landmark ruling that could have repercussions across Latin America.
The vote followed hours of debate – and decades of campaigning by women’s rights groups in the predominantly Catholic country.
Up until now, seeking or aiding an abortion was a punishable offence. The vote in Argentina has been closely watched in other Latin American countries where abortion is largely still illegal.
