ARGENTINA VOTES ABORTION LEGALIZATION
On August 8th, 2018 the Argentine Senate voted the bill that would legalize abortion in the country, making it accessible and free of charge in the public health system. The vote was preceded by weeks of preparation since the Congress approved the bill in June. Activists in favor, signaled by the green color, and against the project, signaled by the blue, went to the streets before and on the day of the vote. In the end, the Senate vetoed it by a score of 38 to 31, frustrating the around 2 million people who joined around the Congress for the approval on a cold and rainy Wednesday.
