Law on legalizing abortion in Uruguay fails due to lack of votes

.- On Tuesday night, the Uruguayan Senate decided to postpone a vote until the following day on the “Sexual and Reproductive Health” law that would legalize abortion in the country.

At the close of debate, which was suspended after only half an hour because of a bomb threat, fifteen lawmakers had voted in favor of abortion and fifteen against, with one abstention. 

When debate resumed the votes remained the same and the motion to legalize abortion in Uruguay failed.
