BUENOS AIRES, Argentina

Protesters pushing for the legalization of abortion in Argentina have stormed the streets in the capital Buenos Aires to support the bill.

The bill was presnted on Tuesday to the lower house to legalize abortion less than a year after the Senate rejected similar legislation.

The new bill is essentially the same as last year’s legislation but adds safeguards for all women seeking an abortion in Argentina, regardless of sexual identity, while removing certain legal requirements that could slow judicial approval for an abortion.
