One Woman Has Died Since Argentina Rejected Abortion Bill

Less than a week after the Argentine Senate rejected a groundbreaking bill that would have legalized abortion up to 14 weeks, the country has its first report of a woman who died due to a botched at-home abortion.
Clairín, Argentina’s largest newspaper,reports that the victim was a 24-year-old mother of two, who has been referred to only as Elizabeth. On Sunday, according to reports,she attempted to induce a miscarriage at-home using parsley, which caused septic shock and infection. Though she was rushed to a hospital in Buenos Aires, where her uterus was removed, Elizabeth died on Tuesday.
