Two young people paint graffiti during a demonstration to demand legal abortion, within the framework of the Global Day of Action for Legal and Safe Abortion, in Caracas, Venezuela, 28 September 2021. About a hundred people marched in Caracas to demand the decriminalization of abortion in Venezuela and demand that Parliament promote a legal, cultural, and social agenda to debate the issue, at the proposal of some ten feminist organizations. Legal abortion is a historical vindication of feminist groups in Latin America, where only Argentina, Cuba, Uruguay, Guyana and four states of Mexico have decriminalized it.
