Argentina’s legalization of abortion on demand in 2020 was closely followed across Latin America. The role of religion in politics has changed dramatically in the region. On the one hand, societies gave grown more secular and the influence of the Catholic Church has waned; on the other hand, growing evangelical movements have given new life to social conservatism. How are the politics of abortion changing in twenty-first century Latin America? Is Argentina a pioneer—or an outlier?
