Groups of pro-abortion demonstrators clashed with the police after several thousands rallied from the Congress to the Cathedral in Buenos Aires. At the Cathedral, guarded by Catholic anti-abortion activists, a Police operation was set up to prevent clashes among the two opposite groups. ,
Pro Abortion demonstrators demand the immediate discussion in the Congress of the law that would allow legal, free and safe abortions in public hospitals, to which Catholics oppose. Illegal abortions are the first cause of mothers death in Argentina, killing one woman every two days, most of them poor women that can't afford a proper clinic.
