  • Manifestation à l'appel des églises évangéliques contre le projet de légalisation de l'avortement le 4 août 2018 à Buenos Aires en Argentine

La Conférence épiscopale argentine, qui rassemble les évêques catholiques du pays, a réagi dans un communiqué à la décision du Sénat: "Nous remercions les hommes et les femmes, au Sénat et au sein des institutions, qui se sont prononcés en faveur de la vie".

38 sénateurs ont dit "non" au texte autorisant l'IVG pendant les 14 premières semaines de grossesse, 31 ont voté en faveur et deux se sont abstenus.

Devant le Parlement situé à Buenos Aires, le vote défavorable à l'avortement a été accueilli par des feux d'artifice et des cris de joie par les militants anti-IVG.

Le prélat qualifie de "moderne" la position du mouvement anti-avortement et lui oppose les pratiques abortives, selon lui "de vieilles lois du siècle passé" qui doivent être remplacées par des "propositions du 21e siècle et pas des vieilles propositions de mort du 20e siècle".

Depuis plusieurs semaines, le pays est divisé en deux couleurs: le vert, qui symbolise la lutte pour le droit à l'avortement, et le bleu clair, référence au drapeau du pays, qui représentait les militants anti-avortement.

"Avortement légal, à l'hôpital", entonnaient sans relâche des milliers d'adolescentes et de jeunes femmes, grimées de vert. Le projet de loi avait pourtant été approuvé par les députés en juin. D'après différentes estimations, environ 500.000 avortements clandestins sont réalisés chaque année dans le pays pour 720.000 naissances.

Les débats, entamés mercredi matin, ont duré toute la journée et se sont poursuivis dans la nuit.

L'Argentine n'était pas loin d'imiter son voisin, le Chili, qui avait, il y a quelques mois, dépénalisé en partie l'avortement après 28 ans d'interdiction.

Les partisans de la légalisation, eux, devront désormais attendre 2020 pour que la question puisse de nouveau être examinée par le Parlement.

Le député de la coalition gouvernementale Cambiemos (Changeons) Daniel Lipovetzky, évoque la possibilité de convoquer un référendum. "Quand les députés pensent d'une manière et les sénateurs d'une autre. C'est possible qu'on le propose".
