DW's Brent Goff talks to Gavan Reilly of the Irish TV3 broadcaster about the landmark vote that could change the Catholic country's constitution
Argentina's failure to pass a law legalizing abortion is an historic missed opportunity. Nevertheless, the country has grown through engaging in this debate on women's rights, says DW's Veronica Marchiaro.
Argentina's Senate faces a historic vote to legalize abortion. Its youth have been especially vocal about it, with many young women and girls especially defying Catholic values in Pope Francis's home country.
Ireland has voted overwhelmingly in favor of abolishing the total abortion ban in its constitution. The result is a triumph for women in Ireland and a victory against populism, says Barbara Wesel.
Ireland's 'Yes' campaigners had worked feverishly in the run-up to the country's landmark abortion referendum. But few expected such a resounding victory. Gavan Reilly reports from Dublin.
