Argentina Judge Blocks Legalization of Abortion in Northern Province

After a movement partially funded by Planned Parenthood succeeded in legalizing abortion up to the 15th week of pregnancy in Argentina, a judge has blocked the law from taking effect in the country's northern province.

After Argentina's Law 27.610 on Access to Voluntary Termination of Pregnancy (IVE) was passed in the early morning of Jan 27, 2021, pro-lifers filed an injunction against its enforcement. Now, Argentina Judge Marta Aucar of the country's northern province of Chaco has blocked the law from being enforced there. For the time being, the province will revert to Argentina's previous laws governing abortion. Those laws state that abortion is a crime punishable by up to four years in prison.

LifeSite News writes that the legal proceedings in this case, as they often are in the United States, will be slow; eventually culminating in a battle in the Argentine Supreme Court. It also writes that more regions are preparing to take similar pro-life actions to protect unborn Argentinians from the threat of this new legislation.
