Another Argentine woman has died because of a botched abortion just as the Senate failed to pass the highly-debated abortion bill.
Romina Fernandez had a clandestine abortion to terminate her pregnancy at the Sanguinetti Hospital in Pilar, Argentina, a suburb of Buenos Aires on August 8, a day before the country’s upper house slimly rejected the bill.
