Argentina is a South American country that is becoming more progressive by the day. Despite being the home country of Pope Francis with a long and deep Catholic history, the nation has a growing feminist movement and left-wing social activism that hates Christianity and tradition.
Argentina Senate Approves Abortion
After a day-long debate Argentina’s Senate gave the green light to abortions up to three-and-a-half months into pregnancy and in cases of rape or health threats to the mother’s life. As in many other traditional countries, activists were successful in deceptively using the rape and danger argument in order to achieve their real objective: the elective, voluntary abortion measure which is the reason for the vast majority of abortions.
In any case, abortion in the case of health danger or rape was already legal in Argentina, showing how it is mainly a tactic used to push abortion as a whole and not an actual concern of activists.
Argentinian President Alberto Fernández welcomed the Senate’s decision tweeting that: “Safe, legal and free abortion is now the law. Today, we are a better society that expands women’s rights and guarantees public health.”
Pray for Argentina. The Senate is voting on abortion today. Pray they stay strong and reject the legalized murder of preborn children.

The Growing Push to Legalize Abortion in Latin America
Argentina is now the biggest South American country that’s made abortion legal. It is illegal in most other Latin American nations except for several parts of Mexico, Cuba, Uruguay and French Guyana (which is part of France, where abortion is fully legal).
Supporters of Argentina’s abortion legalization raved like maniacs in the street wearing green as the VP Cristina Fernández de Kirchner told them they had won. As Argentinia’s Catholic Church noted, the activists seemed to have a feverish – some might even say demonic – “obsession to install abortion.”
Pope Francis also commented from the Vatican on Argentina’s landmark decision, noting that:
“The Son of God was born an outcast, in order to tell us that every outcast is a child of God. He came into the world as each child comes into the world, weak and vulnerable, so that we can learn to accept our weaknesses with tender love.”
Growing Divisions in Argentina
The growing divide between cultural progressives and conservatives is not just an American issue. It’s a worldwide phenomenon that is becoming more intense and unbridgeable by the day. As Argentina’s Catholic church leadership observed, this abortion decision is going to increase polarization in the country.
Argentinian pro-life group Unity said the legalization vote and party was “one of the most macabre days in recent history.”
Argentina tried to pass full abortion legalization before in 2018 but it didn’t have enough government support and failed to pass. This time the country’s center-left government backed the move and also the national Peronist faction allowed party members to vote their conscience.
Unsurprisingly, Amnesty International, which is a progressive propaganda operation that disguises its agenda behind human rights initiatives applauded Argentina’s abortion legalization saying it was “an inspiration for other countries in the region and the world.”
The majority of Argentina’s polls have been against abortion and many people in the country oppose murdering unborn children, but through a relentless political campaign the pro-abortion crowd managed to achieve their objective. As the worldwide progressive movement continues to try to force its beliefs on every country possible the stark reality is becoming clear.
The only apparent positive thing to come out of the vote – from the conservative perspective – is that doctors will be allowed to refuse to do elective abortions (that aren’t being done for rape or to save a mother’s life) if it is against their beliefs. However they will still have to refer the woman to another physician who is willing to do the abortion.
