Abortion in Argentina: President Fernandez pushes to change law


Large crowds of women’s rights activists and pro-abortion rights demonstrators have gathered in Argentina’s capital – supporting a push by the president that would legalise abortion.
The move has reopened a controversial debate in the largely Catholic country after similar efforts failed two years ago.
Human Rights groups say legalising abortion is a matter of public health and that is why they are pushing authorities to take action by turning public buildings green. the colour that has come to represent the call to legalise abortion in Latin America.
