I appreciate your support for a woman's right to choose. And I am also thankful for Uruguay, although many poor women don't have that "choice."tbh, as an expat, this particular thread doesn't seem appropriate here. Abortion is not as likely an issue that many expats (from the US or Europe, for example) would have to deal with in their day-to-day lives here compared to other social or political or economic issues. That said, I fully support a woman's right to choose and was disappointed that the Argentine Senate rejected the proposed law to decriminalize abortion. Thank God there is always Uruguay!
I do think that many of the women on this site are living permanently in Argentina, and therefore they would have to deal with Argentina's arcane abortion laws if they became pregnant unintentionally.
I am shocked and saddened by this Senate vote. Another step backward. I don't know why Argentina keeps shooting itself in the foot on any meaningful steps to join the modern world.
