Argentina to make abortion legal

WaPo reports:
Argentina to make abortion legal
Argentine lawmakers voted early Wednesday to legalize elective abortion, a key step in making the predominantly Roman Catholic country the largest in Latin America to allow the procedure.

The legislation championed by President Alberto Fernández was approved by Argentina’s House of Deputies earlier this month. Fernández is now expected to sign it.

Elective abortion is legal in Cuba, Uruguay, Guyana and parts of Mexico. In Argentina, as in much of the region, the procedure has been permitted only in the case of rape, incest or to save the life of the mother.

Google translate gives me the following translation,
This month Argentina completed six months without ANY women dead from complications resulting from abortion. Do you know something else that celebrates its six month anniversary in Argentina? The legalization of abortion. Previously, 38 THOUSAND women were hospitalized a year for illegal abortions.
it's okay to say "I don't know"
