On Wednesday, December 30, 2020, the Argentine Senate approved the proposal to legalize abortion in the first 14 weeks of pregnancy. This news has caused a stir in much of the world, since it is a struggle that many Argentine women were experiencing to make their voices heard and make the decision for abortion themselves.

The measure went ahead in a parliamentary vote that lasted until late at night with 38 votes in favor, 29 against and one abstention. Thousands of people, for or against the law, gathered outside the Congress waiting for the result.

At the time that the news was released, the famous green tide, who represents the support group for the legalization of abortion, launched shouts of joy and emotion, in contrast to the disappointment of the celestial or "pro-life" collectives, who rejected their approval.

UN Women, the United Nations agency for gender equality and the empowerment of women, dedicated a congratulatory message "to the feminist movement and the Argentine State for this significant achievement." It also called for recognition of the years of mobilization by the sexual and reproductive rights "that are now enshrined in law."

From Madrid, the President of the Spanish Government, Pedro Sánchez, applauded the news, underlining that "Argentina is today a more feminist nation" and that "advancing rights for women until reaching full equality is essential throughout the world.

In Germany, the Association of Physicians for Choice also celebrated the approval of the termination of pregnancy in Argentina, which it described as an "important milestone."
