Buenos Aires, Argentina, Sep 12, 2019 / 23:00 pm
The deans of five Argentine law schools have protested the appointment of a supporter of legalized abortion as Argentina's Ombudsman for the Rights of Girls, Boys and Adolescents since "it's a clear violation of the federal juridical order."
On June 26 the Argentine House of Representatives confirmed Marisa Graham, a well-known abortion advocate in Argentina, to lead the nation's Ombudsman's Office for Boys, Girls and Adolescents.
Graham's appointment now awaits confirmation by Argentina's senate.
The signatories to a letter of objection are the deans of the law schools of the Argentina Catholic University, the Catholic University of La Plata, the Saint Thomas Aquinas University of the North, the University del Salvador, and Fasta University.
