Chile's Senate Health Commission Approves Abortion Bill

This week Chile’s Senate Health Commission agreed to advance a proposed bill that would allow women to access safe and legal abortion services in cases of life-endangerment, sexual violence, and fatal fetal impairments. The legislation, which was introduced by President Michelle Bachelet in January 2015, will face a full Senate vote before heading to President Bachelet for her signature. On March 1, the Constitutional Commission within the Cámara de Diputados approved the bill.
