Argentine Abortion Bill Goes To Senate

CNN is reporting that the Argentine Chamber of Deputies voted Thursday morning to legalize elective abortion in the first 14 weeks of pregnancy.

The bill will now go to the more conservative Senate for consideration.

President Mauricio Macri has said he won't veto the bill if Congress approves it, even though he personally opposes abortion.

Though it's still unclear if the bill will become law, the issue has galvanized Argentine reproductive rights advocates, including thousands who filled the streets around Congress during 23 hours of tense debate.
