Chilean abortion activists showcase their hatred of babies while burning small plastic baby dolls in violent protest.
A ruling in 2017 loosened up on abortion in Chile. Chile was one of the 7 countries to have a total ban on abortions in all circumstances when the Constitutional Court of Chile made 3 exceptions to abortion: rape, if the mother’s life is in danger, and if the baby is not expected to survive.
Now many Chilean feminist organizations are calling for free abortion for all. The Coordinadora Feministas en Lucha (Feminist Coordinators in Struggle), said in a statement to Radio Havana Cuba on July 26:
“From the streets, from Congress and together with feminist organizations, we will be firm in overseeing compliance with the law of legal interruption of pregnancy. We will also be attentive to the course and discussion of the bill presented almost a year ago, on decriminalization of abortion until 14 weeks.”
"So let us be confident, let us not be unprepared, let us not be outflanked, let us be wise, vigilant, fighting against those who are trying to tear the faith out of our souls and morality out of our hearts, so that we may remain Catholics, remain united to the Blessed Virgin Mary, remain united to the Roman Catholic Church, remain faithful children of the Church."- Archbp. Lefebvre 1980
