(the title of this post is in Spanish, and means, roughly, “When abortion?”) (yes, the original is not proper grammar either)
Buenos Aires, the capital city of Argentina, has just legalized same sex marriage.
Abortion continues to be illegal throughout the country. And the whole of latin america.
Something here is very wrong.
When the news programme reported that the courts were considering to do this, my Dad said: “Va a haber matrimonio gay antes de haber aborto”. Which means, “Is there going to be gay marriage before abortion?”. Yes, my Dad is the best.
My own reaction upon hearing that the courts had done this was more succint: “F*UCK”.
I repeat, something here is very wrong. I blame identity politics.
