Feminism and abortion run throughout Latin America
Feminism and abortion is a yearning for Latin-American feminism for many women who struggle to protest "equality" and "freedom" by performing a crime such as abortion. Arguing about a "free and free abortion" goes with speeches and practices of feminist groups in a region with the highest overall illegal global rate of disruptions: 44 out of every 1,000 women. In Honduras, Nicaragua and El Salvador, the interruption of pregnancy (abortion) is criminalized. Elsewhere abortion is not penalized as in Cuba and Uruguay if it is fulfilled within the first 12 weeks of gestation.It is also legal in the Mexican state of Oaxaca. Two years have been similarly since the law on the interruption of pregnancy was enacted in Chile when the mother's life is at risk, or in cases of fetal invisibility and rape.
In Bolivia, practice is allowed in cases of exception. Peruvian justice does not even address cases of rape. In Venezuela, maternal mortality is 112 cases per 100.00.
Venezuela's president said "let the homeland grow, all women have six children."
Latin America has six of the eight countries in the world where abortion is banned on a large scale. The struggle for sexual and reproductive rights has a symbol that Argentina from Latin America exported to the world: the green scarf. After the mass mobilizations of feminists in Argentina the project could become legalized and fully approved by 2018. The daily battle for abortion has mobilized feminism in many other countries on the continent.
In Mexico there are several cases of women imprisoned after having suffered miscarriages and have become emblems of a struggle that remains without any solution. In Colombia, other battles of feminism for reproductive rights have been fought through legal and criminal strategies that ensure that the mental health cause is quoting them, in practice and in abortions although Supreme and Constitutional Courts have refused to make progress and "advance" towards complete decriminalization.
If we could go back in time, we'd have the mobilization against the murders of women that was also a point of inflection. Argentina's "Ni Una Mujer Menos" resumed the public battle against violence against women in 2015.
The president of the Association of Women in Guatemala (Adilia de las Mercedes), points out that the impact that these phenomena have had have been totally uneven. It points out its outright criticism that we tend to recognize and reinforce more the struggles of women who are similar to other women, white and with causes that are easy to identify.
The feminist boom coexists with the far right's reach to many governments and its alliance with evangelist groups. Brazilian feminist Manuela D'Avila, who was a vice presidential candidate for the Communist Party of Brazil, considers the mechanism and right politics to be linked. "They need a moral discourse to be able to sustain what outings they propose. The crisis also involves a crisis of masculinity, millions of men without jobs and jobs, without being able to meet traditional masculinity. These men meet ever freer women. Is it possible to imagine a bagnarism differentiated from machismo in Brazil? I don't think so," she says.
It is known that from Argentina to Chile, also through Mexico, the feminist movement is experiencing a boom throughout Latin America and the fight against sexist violence and in favor of abortion abounds in denunciations and claims to nations and entire governments.
Argentina is currently facing an inter-unification law throughout Latin America on pregnancy and abortion that is long reported and claimed by women. About one hundred pregnant women die each year in Argentina from clandestine abortions, chilling figures that the government itself stopped publishing for the year 2016. around 50,000 women are hospitalized each year for complications trying to terminate their pregnancy 2,350 girls under the age of 14 were mothers and 87,000 babies were born to mothers under the age of 20. , the green handkerchiefs that Argentina made popular mean that they demand a free and totally safe abortion.
Throughout Latin America there are several problems that are similar or similar such as high rates of femicide, judicial impunity, extreme gender violence and abductions or disappearances of women and girls, deaths from clandestine abortions, and poor access to general health for poverty and minimum wages.
The subtle machismo against which they fight in other parts of the world is not the highest priority of this issue, since machismo kills in large doses and to combat that, Latin American women are raising their voices to "stop" the patriarchy since not in all countries the wind manages to blow the wind in favor of complete equality. In Argentina, the great goal of all feminist movements, marches and protests is the last push for abortion to be legalized in this country, something that can probably be approved as likely not.
In Venezuela, Venezuelans, women, adolescents and girls live to the limit. The feminist struggle in Venezuela is fought against anything, against a deep political, social and economic crisis and in the midst of an extreme and emergency situation that has forced many people to deploy humanitarian teams, women bear the brunt. Studies include studies, Venezuelan women are more exposed to other harms such as sexual abuse and family separation, alimony to feed children, and the risk of dying when giving birth in hospitals without medical supplies after pregnancies that cannot be controlled or prevented by the undersupply of contraceptive methods, which has led to problems in the country to maternal mortality that is maintained as in other numbers of femicity.
