Yesterday, we found out that a judge in Buenos Aires, Argentina, acting in response to a petition filed by an anti-choice group, stopped doctors from performing a legal abortion on a woman who became pregnant as a result of rape.
Today, we learn how the anti-choice group got the woman’s private information regarding both the abortion and the location where it would be performed. From the city’s mayor.
Via Fox News:
Opposition politicians on Wednesday filed a criminal complaint against Buenos Aires Mayor Mauricio Macri for alerting a pro-life group that a rape victim was going to undergo an abortion at a municipal hospital in the capital.

“Macri divulged information that should have been private and confidential, and that made it possible for Judge (Myrian) Rustan de Estrada to grant the motion presented by the NGO Pro-Vida, which caused the suspension of the abortion,” complainant Emelia Alonso told a press conference.
Macri’s actions could result in a fine, as well as up to three years out of public office, according to the report.
