Abortion is a public health issue.
More than 50 women die every year in Argentina from complications of illegal abortions; a dangerous procedure that many must resort to due to the astronomical costs of private clinics.
On August 8th, 2018, the second round of voting within the Argentinian Senate begins. For the second day they must vote on whether to approve or deny the decisive abortion law.
FEMEN calls for legal, safe and free abortion for Argentina. It is a vital sexual and reproductive right for women. The decisions of our bodies are ours to make!
The State must guarantee our right to decide, and must end this era of safe, private clinics only being available to the rich.
Safe and free abortion must be guaranteed for all Argentinian women!
The Church, the Right, nor the macho patriarchs have any right to decide the rights of women, or to discuss our guarantees of safety and quality of our lives!
We will no longer tolerate others deciding for us!
WE GIVE BIRTH! WE DECIDE!
We hereby say ENOUGH to the Church and to the machismos who decide in our place!
We launch a cry from the Argentine Embassy in Spain in support of our Argentinian sisters!
ABORTION IS SACRED! FROM MADRID TO BUENOS AIRES! FROM SPAIN TO ARGENTINA, AND ALL OVER THE WORLD!
