Ya Legalizaron El Aborto En Argentina

In 2012, the Supreme Court issued a judgment in the case of FAL, a 15-year-old girl who had been raped by her stepfather, giving the interpretation that Article 86(2) of the Penal Code should give, stating that abortion is not punishable in all cases of rape, regardless of the psychological situation of the raped woman or the pregnant person. The Court also found that Article 86 does not violate the Convention on the Children and that the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child has not indicated that countries that allow abortion should amend their laws to prohibit it. The Court also ruled on the compatibility of abortion and art. The 1921 penal code was sanctioned during Argentina`s first democratic government (secret and compulsory election for men) under the leadership of radical President Hipólito Yrigoyen and prepared by a commission composed of socialist Enrique del Valle Iberlucea, conservative Pedro Garro and progressive democrat Joaquín V. González. The Commission stated that, in the field of abortion, it relied on the text of the draft Swiss Criminal Code of 1916 and stated that the non-criminalization of abortion in cases of indecent assault against women with intellectual disabilities had a eugenic purpose, quoting Luis Jiménez de Asúa: Similarly, the draft general comment of the Human Rights Committee on the 1996 Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, Prepared in 2017, it states: “States Parties should provide safe access to abortion to protect the life and health of pregnant women and in situations where pregnancy would cause significant pain or suffering to the woman. Especially if the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest, or if the fetus suffers fatal deterioration. When the Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) expressed concern, it said the HRC should delete the words “especially if the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest, or if the fetus suffers from a fatal disability.” He did not give details about the rest of the passage. [75] [76] [77] Those who do not directly perform the practice of interruption cannot be “objectors,” such as those who must guarantee, for example: ultrasound, blood pressure or temperature measurement, post-abortion follow-up, administration of medication, anesthesia, among others.

“This is a victory for the women`s movement in Argentina, which has been fighting for its rights for decades. Now, people who decide to terminate their pregnancies have a safe and quality service. Today, we have grown as a company. Amnesty International will work for the state to ensure respect for legal abortion throughout the country,” said Mariela Belski, Executive Director of Amnesty International Argentina. In April 2015, a new update of the Technical Guide for the Comprehensive Management of Non-Criminal Abortion was published, in this case under the name Protocol for the Comprehensive Care of Persons with the Right to Legal Abortion. [91] In addition, everyone has the right to post-abortion treatment, whether or not in situations provided for by law, and to access contraceptives. According to official figures, about 3,000 women have lost their lives in Argentina in nearly 370,000 illegal abortions in which women often have to undergo surgery without health guarantees or for which they have to pay large sums of money. Abortion in Argentina refers to the history and current state of voluntary abortion. Argentina has introduced the decriminalization of therapeutic abortion and abortion based on rape since 1921 and introduced the right to free and medically assisted abortion by Law 27.610 of 30 December 2020 in cases already authorized since 1921 or in all other cases where the pregnancy does not exceed the fourteenth week inclusive. [1] The law entered into force throughout the national territory on 24 January 2021, following the proclamation of the President of the Nation, Alberto Fernández.

[2] Amnesty International advocates the legalization of abortion. According to a report by the organization, it is estimated that on average between 486,000 and 522,000 secret abortions are performed in Argentina each year. In 17 of the 24 provinces, it is the most common cause of maternal mortality. Amnesty`s report says that every day, 298 adolescent girls between the ages of 15 and 19 are mothers in Argentina, with 70% of these pregnancies unplanned. Although the law recognizes the right of children and adolescents to comprehensive sexuality education in public, public and private, religious and secular educational institutions.
