The following statement is from Catherine Glenn Foster, President & CEO of Americans United for Life:

“Life in the womb is human life, and every human being deserves protection. Argentina, like all of South America, is pro-life and will remain so. Argentina has wisely rejected the false message that abortion is necessary to protect women’s health; the truth is that the more pro-mother and pro-life a country is, the better its maternal health record generally is, as the experience of Argentina’s neighbor Chile amply shows. We also applaud the courage of the original bill sponsor, Senator Silvina García Larraburu, who changed her mind and voted her convictions against this bill.”
