Colombia decriminalizes abortion in the first twenty-four weeks
Colombia’s constitutional court has decriminalized abortions within the first 24 weeks of gestation.
Under the new rules, no one will go prosecuted for inducing an abortion within that time frame.
Since 2006, abortions have been allowed in Colombia in cases of rape, when the woman’s life is at risk, or if the pregnancy is not feasible.
The ruling went welcomed by pro-choice groups, who called it “a historic accomplishment.”
