A small, but positive step . . .

Activists in Argentina have been pushing
for a debate about the legalisation of abortion
ACCORDING TO THE BBC, the Supreme Court in Argentina has ruled that women who have an abortion after being raped will no longer be prosecuted.

Under Argentine law, abortion is only allowed in cases where the mother's life or health are at risk, or if the woman is deemed "of feeble mind".
The Supreme Court confirmed a lower court's decision to allow a 15-year-old rape victim to terminate her pregnancy.
An estimated 500,000 illegal abortions are carried out in Argentina each year.

500,000 abortions — how appallingly tragic. And this is how Stevie's hard-core religious nut-bar supporters think women in Canada should live? These twisted zealots are morally offensive to the extreme.
