Abor­tion protest

THOU­SANDS of women marched through the streets of Rio de Janeiro yes­ter­day to protest a con­gres­sional com­mit­tee vote to make abor­tion il­le­gal with­out ex­cep­tion in Brazil. Abor­tion is cur­rently al­lowed in Brazil in cases of rape, a preg­nancy that threat­ens a woman’s life or a spe­cific birth de­fect.
