Chile to Pass Historic Bill

Chile to Pass Historic Bill

Today Chile’s Constitutional Tribunal voted 6 to 4 to pass an abortion bill that will allow women to access safe and legal abortion services in cases of life-endangerment, rape, and fatal fetal impairments. President Michelle Bachelet introduced abortion legislation in January 2015. The abortion bill passed in Constitutional and Health Committees within both the Cámara de Diputados —the lower house of Chile’s Congress—and the Senate. However, soon after Congress passed the bill, conservative groups challenged the bill calling it unconstitutional and the Constitutional Tribunal held hearings last week before making its final ruling.

New Poll from the Center for Reproductive Rights: 6 in 10 Americans Support Federal Law to Protect Abortion Access

No matter their personal beliefs, most Americans believe abortion should be legal and would support Congress passing a new federal law to protect women’s access to care--according to a poll released today by the Center for Reproductive Rights. The survey of 1,877 voting-age adults in the United States sought to gauge attitudes towards women’s health as Congress debates stripping away reproductive care and state legislatures continue to pass hundreds of restrictions limiting access to services.
