As Argentina’s Episcopal Conference has been urging the country’s Catholics and Christians to demonstrate against abortion, representatives of the National Campaign for the Right to Legal, Safe and Free Abortion are denouncing stalling tactics by the country's Senate and attempts by the city to limit their vigil.
Two days before the Argentine Senate vote on the bill to legalize the voluntary interruption of pregnancies within the first 14 weeks, which seeks to protect the lives of hundreds of thousands of women, Christians of different denominations marched in Buenos Aires to reject the bill.
