Uruquay to Legalize Abortion
An article in the Seattle Times tells the story of Uruguay's move to legalize abortion. As the only country in Latin America where it is currently legal is Cuba, this seems like an important event.
The reasoning behind the move is also sound. It is to reduce the number of illegal abortions -- a rather pragmatic statement considering it is from politicians.
Uruguay's congress appeared ready on Tuesday to legalize abortion, a groundbreaking move in Latin America, where no country save Cuba has made abortions accessible to all women during the first trimester of pregnancy.
