阿根廷:因意外流產而入獄的Belén獲釋

2014年3月,25歲的 Belén 因腹部劇痛到公立醫院求診,從而得悉自己懷孕但正面臨流產。她其後在毫無可靠證據下被警察以非法墮胎之罪拘捕,並被判處八年監禁刑期。根據阿根廷的法律,只有當懷孕嚴重影響孕婦健康或孕婦是因姦成孕,才能合法墮胎。
 
今年7月26日,國際特赦組織向阿根廷遞交來自全球超過120,000個請願書,督促當地政府釋放 Belén 。8月16日晚上,阿根廷圖庫曼的最高法院說他們並沒有充分原因及證據繼續羈留 Belén,並於8月18日獲得釋放。
 
國際特赦組織認為,裁定釋放 Belén 是阿根廷邁向人權的一步。

Argentina: Ruling to release woman jailed after miscarriage

In March 2014, 25-year old Belén arrived to the hospital with painful stomach cramps. She was diagnosed with a miscarriage, that was when she found out that she was pregnant. She was then arrested for having induced an abortion against the Argentina’s strict anti-abortion law, although there was no any evidence showing a link to it. Argentine law only permits abortion to be undertaken when the life or health of the pregnant woman is at risk or when the pregnancy is a result of rape. 

This July, Amnesty International handed over more than 120,000 petitions from across the globe to local authorities, urging Belén to be released. On 16 August, the Supreme Court of Tucumán in north Argentina said there were not enough reasons to keep Belén in pre-trial detention. Belén was released from jail 48 hours after the court rulings.
 
Amnesty International believes that a ruling to release Belén from her 8-year sentence following her miscarriage was a step forward for human rights in the country.
