Italian Women March; Nations Fail to Count Women

(WOMENSENEWS)–
Cheers
On Jan. 14, 50,000 pro-choice women took to the streets of Milan, marching under the slogan "Let’s Emerge From Silence" and demanding that Italy maintain its current abortion law. The women were concerned that the country’s Catholic politicians, encouraged by the Vatican, would try to undo a 1978 Italian law that makes abortion legal in the first three months of pregnancy.
