After a debate of almost 12 hours, the Chamber of Senators of the Nation announced the approval of the law of voluntary interruption of pregnancy.
From Neuquén, the politicians used their profiles on the social network Twitter to express their opinions in relation to the opinion.
María Eugenia Ferrareso, from the Neuquén Popular Movement, showed her emotion at the approval of the law. “I cry for all the girls of yesterday today and whenever they led this fight, pushed this law and made this country a little fairer for all of them today,” he published.
The national deputy for Neuquén Francisco Sánchez, a reference for Cambiemos, spoke out against the senators’ decision. “A Congress that does not represent the interests of Argentines, but rather the policy that defends foreign interests, is an illegitimate power,” he said on his Twitter account.
He also rejected the tweet of the Spanish government president, Pedro Sánchez, who posted a message to congratulate Argentine politicians for having expanded women’s rights. “That this miserable crap, who along with communism has brought Spain to its knees, rejoices in a law that promotes abortion in Argentina, is a good measure of which side to be on,” wrote the Neuquén deputy, in a harsh message against the president of Spain.
For his part, the Secretary of Energy and president of the Neuquén PJ, Darío Martínez, held the “historic session”, which turned out to be “an achievement of thousands of women who have long been fighting for the right to decide whether to maternity or not.”
In turn, Councilor Marcelo Zúñiga shared a video and described the approval of the law as an act that makes Argentina a fairer country.
The provincial deputy Soledad Martínez stressed that “today we rise up in a more just and egalitarian country to live.”
Nadia Márquez, Neuquén councilor for Christian Democracy, shared a brief image to express her position against the law approved by the senators. “My engagement did not end,” he wrote.
Patricia Jure, a provincial deputy for the Left Front, also spoke in favor of the approval of this law, and clarified that it was a victory against a sector that she called anti-rights. “Ojito President Fernández with vetoing rights promised to the clergy,” he added.
For his part, Lucas Castelli, provincial deputy for Cambiemos, shared a map that showed how senators from different provinces voted. “I celebrate those who put aside their beliefs, and work for an Argentina with more rights,” published the legislator on his profile on the social network.
The province’s Minister of Education, Cristina Storioni, used just one word to show her position. With a text that read “today”, she shared a video that explained the role of women in society and the achievements that expanded their rights.
