by International Campaign for Women's Right to Safe Abortion
Starting on 21 May, the Campaign began to circulate a petition from Argentina to express support on the part of the international community for the comprehensive and democratic debate that is currently taking place in the four Commissions of the Argentinian Congress, and will lead to debate and a vote in June. The letter said we sincerely hope that the members of the Congress will vote in favour of the bill put forward by the abortion rights movements in the country, the 7th such attempt, and the first to be tabled and have a strong hope of success. The final debate is scheduled for June 13.
We are pleased to announce that the petition garnered 409 signatures and was presented on 28 May, the International Day of Action for Women’s Health, to the Secretaries of the four Commissions and the Administrative Secretariat of the Commission on General Legislation.
