Peru close to decriminalizing abortion

It's a big deal in a country whose population is more than 90% Catholic. The Peruvian Congress will soon debate a bill decriminalizing abortion, which was proposed by a Congressional commission evaluating the country's penal code. 

Currently, Peruvian women who become pregnant from rape or incest cannot have an abortion. 

I thought I'd cite old Amnesty International's response.
