gender criminalization

The Free Commission We want them conducted a study together with Center for Legal and Social Studies (CELS), the University of Saint Martin (Unsam) and other specialists, who revealed that between 2018 and 2020 at least 1,532 people were criminalized or reported for having an abortion in Argentina.

The campaign demands his acquittal under the premise that “he is a victim of criminalization, he was denied house arrest, due assistance, access to health and justice”. And they stressed that the Committee for the Prevention of Torture recommended contemplating “judgment standards with a gender perspective”.

The group acts in conjunction with the Ministry of Gender and Diversity of Corrientes, the Human Rights Secretariat, the Committee against Torture, the Feminist Press team and the former deputy Araceli Ferreyra.

“We denounce that in these cases the ‘principle of innocence’‘Invisible evidence’ is generated in complicity with the media and the health system and pregnant people are criminalized violating their rights and those of their children”, denounces the statement released by the Free We Want Them Commission.

“The story of Ana in Corrientes is that of Belén in Tucumán, Liliana in Córdoba, Fátima in Bahía Blanca”, they detail from the National Campaign for the Right to Abortion. Along these lines, they added: “we demand a Justice with a gender perspectivewithout cruelty, without abuses and without aggression, as well as the immediate intervention of the State to stop and reverse the criminalization of obstetric events and all related human rights violations.”

Likewise, the Committee for the Prevention of Torture issued a statement in which it suggests that the Justice address the case with a gender perspective, almost as “a legal obligation and an inescapable duty” in the face of the right to equality and non-discrimination that is recognized both nationally and by international organizations.
