GDC Supports the New Chilean Abortion Bill

Global Doctors for Choice (GDC) wrote to the Chilean Constitutional Court to support the passage of bill No. 9.895 – 11 that proposed to decriminalize abortion in three circumstances:  1) when the pregnancy is a result of rape or incest, 2) when the pregnancy threatens the woman’s life, or 3) when the pregnancy has a fatal fetal anomaly. August 3, 2017 Chile’s Congress passed this bill and will now go to the Supreme Court to determine the bill’s legality.
