Argentina: G.N.R. Case – A disabled 18-year-old woman who lived at a foundation known as the Children’s Trust of Bahia Blanca became pregnant as a result of rape. She requested an abortion, which was approved by the health care provider. However, a family court judge revoked the claimant’s right to an abortion, taking into account the request of a couple that had appeared before the court to request an adoption of the unborn child.
