The highest court in Colombia, the Constitutional Court, has rejected a case brought to legalize abortion. Lawyers had argued that international agreements required Colombia to legalize abortion in certain circumstances. However, the court did not rule on the case but rejected it as flawed, because the complaint filed lacked sufficient arguments to allow for a ruling. The rejection of the case, rather than a ruling against it has left the door open for another attempt to bring a case to the Columbian courts. Source: Lifesite.net.
