A large crowd of people gathered in Cordoba, Argentina, in support of legalized abortion as the Senate in Buenos Aires debated on August 8 a bill to allow the procedure up to the 14th week. The bill passed Argentina’s Chamber of Deputies by a slim margin in June, according to reports, sparking a renewed effort from grassroots women’s rights activists to promote the cause, despite backlash in the overwhelmingly Catholic country, birthplace of Pope Francis.

In Buenos Aires, the capital, thousands of people rallied in front of the National Congress of Argentina in support of legalization. Credit: @naturallaurit via Storyful
