.- 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 Argentinaâs current president, told Radio 10 she has always âbeen against abortion,â but she said she has âmuch respect for the opinion of others.â
âI donât think that those who work for the legalization of abortion are for abortion. That would be a reductionâ of their position, she said ambiguously.
âThe stigmatizing of others by arguing bothers me a lot, that if you think someone is favor of abortion and I donât agree with that, then I stigmatize that person and Iâm against him,â she said.
Support for gay unions
During the interview, Fernandez did say she supported âfreedom of sexual choice in Argentina and the world,â and she said her administration would support the legalization of same-sex unions.
âItâs an issue to be debated in Parliament. Itâs not a question for debate at the executive level,â she said.
