Editor's note: Today we welcome Dr. Moisés Russo, writing from Chile. He has experience in healthcare and bioethics, and will be reporting on reproductive health in South America.
Is not Chile the country in Latina America that sets an example of a working democracy after a military regime? Isn't Chile the country where the government and opposition coalitions have provided stability for the past 16 years? Perhaps it is, although we may realize today that the price for stability that Chilean parliamentarians are willing to pay is far too much: women's lives.
