Bill for legal abortion advance to Senate voting stage in Argentina

After 20 hours of debate in the lower chamber of Argentinean congress, the bill to legalize abortion under certain conditions got enough votes (131 vs. 117) to continue to the next stage in the upper chamber. The bill was introduced by president Alberto Fernandez and accepted a few changes lately, both were apparently the main factors to have different results compared with the 2018 discussion.
