Abortion sparks row in Argentina17 October 2012
Tensions have flared in Argentina after a 32-year-old woman who was freed from a prostitution ring won the right to an abortion, which is strictly limited there.
The abortion took place when the woman was 10 weeks pregnant on 12 October after the Supreme Court overturned a ruling on 9 October from a lower court judge, who had blocked the procedure arguing there was no evidence the woman had been raped.
Amnesty International condemned the delay as "inhuman and degrading treatment".
A group of lawyers, Catholic Attorney Corps, protested against the Supreme Court's decision.
Catholics have come under fire for opposing abortion. On 7 October, around 500 attendees of the pro-choice National Meeting of Women in Argentina in Posadas, west Mexico, threw paint at a group of young Catholics praying the rosary outside the local cathedral.
