Thousands Rally Across Argentina Demanding Legalized Abortion

HeadlineFeb 20, 2020

In Argentina, thousands of reproductive rights activists held protests in dozens of cities Wednesday to renew their push to legalize abortion. Public support for abortion rights has grown since 2018, when a bill to repeal an abortion ban narrowly lost in the Argentine Senate. This is Pamela Martin, who joined a large protest in Buenos Aires’s city center.

Pamela Martin: “Today is a day of action for safe, legal and free abortion. This is our third protest. February 19th is a day for political influence, a day in which we ask ourselves to continue calling for, to demand and to struggle for our right to decide.”
