Abortion has always existed and will continue to exist, with or without the law. Women have a right to choose what to do with their own bodies. The time has come for safe, legal, and free abortions in ARGENTINA.
I had an abortion 30 years ago in Chicago. It was my decision at 40 years of age. Women in Argentina have been fighting for the right to safe abortions for more than 12 years.
I was there yesterday at Plaza Congreso to hear the women who started this movement 13 years ago. What impassioned speeches we heard from them! Next Monday, June 4, is another demonstration before the June 13 vote in Congress.
If Ireland could do it with 67% voting against the abortion ban, Argentina can pass legislation for legal, safe, and free abortions. No more lost lives because of clandestine abortions.
