Uruguay takes historic step on abortion

Published: 10.18.12, 00:38 / Israel News

Uruguay's Senate legalized first-trimester abortions for all women Wednesday in a groundbreaking measure that came with so many strings attached it left neither side in the bitter debate completely satisfied.


Senators voted 17-14 to back the measure, which has already passed the lower house and President Jose Mujica is expected to quickly sign into law. The legislation establishes that the public health care system must guarantee every woman the freedom to decide without pressure whether or not to have the procedure. (AP)
