Argentina: Mass euphoria in Buenos Aires as abortion bill one step closer to reality

Thousands of people celebrated the approval of a bill legalising abortion on Thursday in Buenos Aires. People gathered around the Congress, as the Argentinean Chamber of Deputies voted in favour of the bill after a two-day debate. «It's a historic day for the recognition of rights in Argentina, it's a historic day because our representatives in the congress of many political parties understood... Еще that the dilemma here was not in favour or against life», said one of them. With 129 votes in favour and 123 against, the bill would allow abortion up to the 14th week of pregnancy. Hundreds of people even had camped outside the Congress overnight.
