Tomorrow (August 8), the Argentine Senate will vote on an abortion bill that was narrowly passed by the Chamber of Deputies in June. If passed, it would allow women to have a legal abortion up until the 14th week of pregnancy.
Sex workers in Argentina’s capital have expressed solidarity with the pro-choice movement, which they say aligns with their own wish for body autonomy and integrity.
