Perú da pasos para garantizar el aborto terapéutico

Mona Lisa Diéguez - Peru ApS

El viernes 27 de junio el Ministerio de Salud del Perú aprobó la Guía Técnica Nacional para la Atención del aborto terapéutico en hospitales públicos, es decir, tal como señala el Artículo 119 del Código Penal peruano, la interrupción del embarazo con consentimiento de la mujer, para salvar su vida o evitar un mal grave o permanente.

In Peru, for 90 years, therapeutic abortion is legal. However, over the years, the Peruvian State has ensured that women have access to quality care in public health services by the lack of a regulatory. This triggered a sustained struggle of feminists and women's organizations demanding the publication of a national protocol for therapeutic abortion to ensure the life and health care of women.

The National Guide approved notes and standardizes procedures to be followed and medical care for a woman who needed a therapeutic abortion.

From Alliance for Solidarity in Peru, we applaud this action by the Peruvian government in recognition of women's rights, specifically the right to health and life. Hope it is the beginning of the consolidation of policies for gender equality and sexual and reproductive rights in the country.
