GOOD FOR THEM!! About time someone did something to these women hating, phallic worshipping tax evading political institutions posing as religious authority!!
Follow the bouncing ball!! Never Fails!
"""Buried deep in the proposal, on page 169, Bachelet outlined plans to decriminalize abortion under certain circumstances for the first time in decades.“We will promote policies to reinforce women’s autonomy,” the platform declared.“This includes … the decriminalization of voluntary interruption of pregnancy in cases of danger to the mother’s life, rape or unviability of the fetus.
But Chile is not Uruguay or Argentina. It is one of the most socially conservative countries in Latin America, with high levels of religiosity and more than 70 percent of the population identifying as Roman Catholic (divorce wasn’t even legal in the country until 2005). Historically isolated as a result of the jagged Andes mountain range, Chile has long had less immigration than some of its neighbors and a strong upper class with ties to the powerful Catholic Church—not to mention nearly two decades of dictatorship at a time when the women’s rights movement was gaining traction around the world."""

Is about time that women in Chile have right to choose! Most special in rape cases. Come on people, we are in the year 2015, no the Dark Ages!
Hopefully in the States women we still keep that right...
