The Green Wave: Marching towards legal abortion in Argentina


Last year, hundreds of thousands of girls and women came together to urge Argentina’s lawmakers and legislators to decriminalize and ensure safe access to abortion. These women were part of a huge campaign. They came from different movements and organizations, including Amnesty International Argentina, united in their call for change.

Here, seven women who were part of the inspiring movement known as ‘the green wave’ – a colour now synonymous with the campaign for safe and legal abortion in Argentina – reveal why they’re not about to stop speaking out…


  1. Most people having abortions already have children, often with the requests coming from the husband or male partner. Birth control is not 100% effective. There are other countries you can live in if you like living under religious tyranny and moral hypocrisy with someone constantly making rules claiming they're in line with God. I prefer Democracy and allowing people to make their own choices about what works best for their families and health.
