Argentina Senate has rejected a bill to legalize abortion in first 14 weeks of pregnancy. A marathon debate that went on for 15 years took place before 31 voted in favour of the bill while 38 voted against it. Rejection of the bill means only in case of life risk or rape abortion will be legal and otherwise, it would be illegal. Uruguay and Cuba are only 2 Latin American countries to have decriminalized abortion.
