Majority of Latin Americans oppose legalized abortion
Majority of Latin Americans oppose legalized abortion

.- A public opinion poll conducted by the Latin American Department of Social Sciences (LADSS) revealed that in four countries of the region, the majority of citizens oppose the legalization of abortion. The poll by LADSS, an organization that promotes gender ideology and supports the legalization of abortion, revealed that there is little support for the total legalization of abortion in Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Nicaragua.

According to the data presented at the 2nd Latin American Congress of Social Sciences, citizens in these countries only accept abortion in certain circumstances, such as rape. The data also showed that Latin Americans are aware that abortion has negative consequences for women.

Between 66 and 81 percent of those polled rejected the legalization of abortion in their countries.

Claudia Dides, director of the Gender and Equality Program for LADSS Chile, admitted that Chileans are still “conservative” in the issue of abortion because esteem for motherhood and the concept of the woman as the giver of life “still prevails in Latin America.”

She called the poll “an instrument” for learning about what the Latin American society thinks about abortion, so that more effective efforts can be made to introduce the practice into the policies of the countries in the region.
