CHILE, August 21, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – In a 6-4 vote today, Chile’s high court upheld a law legalizing abortion in cases of rape, danger to the mother’s life, and fetal disability.

Chile, known internationally for its strong pro-life laws, has been debating legalizing abortion. Its Parliament passed the bill allowing some abortions, and the country’s socialist President Michelle Bachelet has promised to sign it. Bachelet was the one who introduced the legislation.

This legislation allowing some abortions is constitutional, the Constitutional Court ruled.

Planned Parenthood and Amnesty International celebrated the decision as a “victory.”
