CLAN­DES­TINE ABOR­TIONS ARE THE LEAD­ING CAUSE OF MA­TER­NAL DEATH IN AR­GENTINA. De­spite the fact that es­ti­mates for these abor­tions are as high as 520 000 per year, the govern­ment has yet to sign pro­gres­sive leg­is­la­tion al­low­ing women to choose to legally and safely ter­mi­nate a preg­nancy. In Poland, the govern­ment and Catholic Church are try­ing to push through a ‘Stop Abor­tion’ bill, which will crack down even harder on the al­ready strict abor­tion laws in the coun­try. Thou­sands of pro-choice ac­tivists in both coun­tries are re­new­ing their ef­forts to push their gov­ern­ments to make re­pro­duc­tive rights a pri­or­ity.
