On 21 August 2017, Chile’s Constitutional Court has voted (6-4) to approve a bill to ease the total ban on abortions which is currently in place. The proposed bill aims to legalize abortions when a woman’s life is in danger, when a fetus is not viable and in cases of rape. The Court found that the proposed bill is not violating Chile’s Constitution.Chile is as of this day one of seven countries (Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Malta, The Vatican and Dominican Republic) with an abortion ban in all circumstances. The ban has been introduced in 1989 under General Pinochet.
