In Ecuador, the Constitutional Court issued a ruling in April 2021 ordering the National Assembly to create a law to guarantee safe access to abortion in cases of rape.

The bill is still being debated.
This Thursday, February 3, 2022, we were once again disappointed with the very poor level of debate of the Ecuadorian Assembly members in the 2nd debate of the bill for the Voluntary Interruption of Pregnancy in Cases of Rape. They are incapable of putting the lives of women, girls and people with gestational capacity at the center.

Women's and feminist organizations, as well as self-styled pro-life anti-rights groups, where most of them were religious and men, gathered outside.

En Ecuador la Corte Constitucional dictó una sentencia en abril de 2021 donde ordenaba a la Asamblea Nacional la creación de una ley para garantizar el acceso seguro a abortos en casos de violación.

Todavía se sigue debatiendo el proyecto de ley.
Este jueves 3 de febrero de 2022 quedamos nuevamente decepcionadas con el nivel de debate paupérrimo de lxs asambleístas ecuatorianxs en el 2do debate del proyecto de Ley de Interrupción Voluntaria del Embarazo en Casos de Violación. Son incapaces de poner en el centro la vida de las mujeres, niñas y personas con capacidad de gestar.

En las afueras se dieron cita organizaciones de mujeres, feministas; así como agrupaciones anti derechos autodenominadas pro vida donde la mayoría eran religiosas y varones.
