On November 29, 2020, a cesarean section was performed in the maternal and child hospitals in San Salvador, Huhoi Province, Argentina.
A 12 -year -old girl, obviously she was still a child, but was forced to have a pair of twins.
For the consideration of privacy, the girl’s name was not made public.
Girls usually live in Monterco in northwestern Argentine cities, about 37 kilometers from St. Salvador.
Prior to this, the girl was unfortunately raped, and then found that she was pregnant.
The 12 -year -old victim is still young, and no one wants to have a child who has a rapist.
Obviously, it is best to arrange abortion surgery for her as soon as possible.
Most of the Latin American countries believe in Catholicism. The laws on abortion are extremely strict, and Argentina is no exception.
The "Criminal Law" revised by the country in 1921 stipulates that only in the case of endangering women’s lives can we legally terminate pregnancy.
It was not until 2019 that this law was updated, and the rape victims could also have legal abortion.
In other cases, abortion is considered criminal crime and can be imprisoned for up to 15 years.
Not only the abortion woman, but even the doctors, nurses and other relevant personnel may be criminally charged.
However, even according to the current rigorous law, a 12 -year -old girl who is forced to get pregnant for rape can choose to abandon.
The Argentine National Health Guidance Commission contacted the provincial authorities and expressed his willingness to help the girl immediately, but it continued to delay.
Some people accused local officials of deliberately delaying time and allowing victims to continue pregnancy. After the fetus in the abdomen reached a certain degree of maturity, they eventually forced the victims to make the choice of birth.
In terms of human rights organizations, Argentina’s laws on abortion have not set a time limit for legal abortion, which makes local officials with tough attitudes often set any time limit.
It has been procrastinating to Sunday two weeks before. On November 29, 2020, a 12 -year -old girl underwent a cesarean section surgery and gave birth to twins.
This surgery left permanent scars on the girl, followed by it, which caused serious psychological trauma.
There is no more information disclosure about the rape of the victim girl and the twin situation she gave birth to her.
Data show that in Huhi Province, 685 minor girls were forced to get pregnant and gave birth to only 685 minors this year, of which 20 were between 10 and 14 years old.
Obviously, the experience of the 12 -year -old girl is not an example.
With the appeal and efforts of social people, on December 11, 2020,
After 20 hours of debate, the Argentine House of Representatives passed the legalization bill of abortion with 131 votes in favor, 117 votes opposition, and 6 votes.
After the voting result spread, the Buenos Aires Congress Building gathered with supporters of the abortion rights with green outfits, and suddenly they were rejoicing and crying.
At the other end of the square, the anti -abortionists wearing light blue are disappointed.
Next, the bill still needs to be submitted to the Senate to debate and vote at the end of this month.
If the Senate approved the bill in the end, Argentina will become one of the earliest major Latin America countries to legalize abortion.
On December 11, 2020, Argentine women, gender and diversified minister Elisabeth Gómez Alcorta said:
"Today, we have written a new chapter in history."
"We will continue to work hard to make voluntary termination of pregnancy a law!"
