The “Green Tide” pro-abortion movement attacks in Argentina again
Even though the Argentine Senate has refused to approve the legalisation of abortion, opponents are striking back and aggressively promoting their anti-life ideologies
The Argentine media is saturated with news coverage about pro-abortion manifestations across the entire country. The movement behind the demonstrations is called “Green Tide,” because of the green scarfs that abortion activists wear.
Amazingly, pro-choice activists are getting much more attention from the media than the pro-life side. For example, on the 19th of February, about 150 thousand people took part in a pro-abortion demonstration in Buenos Aires. The event drew huge media interest. In contrast, the “March for Life” in 2018 brought about three million people onto the streets – twenty times more than the pro-abortion march, yet received less promotion and coverage on TV and in the newspapers.
The latest pro-abortion protest was aimed at pressurising the Argentine government to reopen the debate on the legality of abortion. Curiously, the pro-abortion movement had already been defeated last August when the Senate rejected the legalisation of elective abortion in the entire country thus making the present unyielding stance of the pro-abortion side incomprehensible in a democratic system.
