Leading presidential candidate in Argentina will neither support nor prevent legalization of abortion

.- Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, who leads the polls in the Argentinean presidential campaign, said this week she is against abortion but would not commit to stopping it from becoming legal.

Fernandez, the wife of Argentina’s current president, told Radio 10 she has always “been against abortion,” but she said she has “much respect for the opinion of others.”

“I don’t think that those who work for the legalization of abortion are for abortion.  That would be a reduction” of their position, she said ambiguously.

“The stigmatizing of others by arguing bothers me a lot, that if you think someone is favor of abortion and I don’t agree with that, then I stigmatize that person and I’m against him,” she said.

Support for gay unions

During the interview, Fernandez did say she supported “freedom of sexual choice in Argentina and the world,” and she said her administration would support the legalization of same-sex unions.

“It’s an issue to be debated in Parliament.  It’s not a question for debate at the executive level,” she said.
