Editors’ note: As a new law in Uruguay makes abortion more accessible to women during their first trimester of pregnancy, this DifferenTakes looks at the advocacy campaign and political context that made it possible. While there are many reasons to celebrate, serious restrictions on women’s autonomy and abortion rights remain. The Uruguayan experience offers important lessons for similar struggles elsewhere in Latin America and the Caribbean.
