Chile: Protesters rally to support abortion in solidarity with Argentina

Around 500 women from various feminist organisations gathered in front of the Embassy of Argentina in Santiago on Wednesday, to support free abortion in solidarity with Argentinian protesters. Demonstrators chanted slogans «legal, safe and free abortion,» as police dispersed the crowd with tear gas and water cannons. One protester was wounded by the water cannons and moved by her companions... Еще while the police continued with the arrests. The planned abortion bill in Argentina asks for the practice to be legalised in all circumstances in the first 14 weeks of pregnancy. It has already passed a vote in the lower house, despite being opposed by the Catholic Church and Argentinian-born Pope Francis. According to Amnesty International, unsafe abortion has been the cause of death of over 3,000 women in the last 25 years in the country.
