Columbia High Court Rules Abortion Decriminalized Under Certain Circumstances
From Women's Link Worldwide:
Colombia's Highest Court Rules in Favor of Easing One of World's Most Restrictive Abortion Laws
"In an historic 5 to 3 decision, the Constitutional Court of Colombia ruled yesterday in favor of decriminalizing abortion when a woman's life or health is in danger, the pregnancy is the result of rape, or the fetus has malformation incompatible with life outside the womb. Colombia's penal code provisions had previously outlawed the procedure under all circumstances."
