Se carece de evidencia sobre la incidencia y las consecuencias del aborto inseguro en Chile
El hallazgo más importante de un nuevo análisis sobre el aborto clandestino en Chile es justamente la poca evidencia sólida que de hecho existe acerca del tema. El nuevo informe, “Aborto Inducido en Chile” (in English) realizado por Elena Prada, consultora independiente, y Haley Ball del Guttmacher Institute, documenta las principales brechas en el conocimiento relativo a la incidencia y las consecuencias del aborto inducido, las características de las mujeres que buscan servicios de aborto y sus razones para hacerlo.

337 Whales Washed Up in Chile in One of Largest Strandings Ever
(SANTIAGO, Chile) — The coast of southern Chile has become a grave for 337 sei whales that were found beached in what scientists say is one of the biggest whale strandings ever recorded. Biologist Vreni Haussermann told The Associated Press Tuesday that she made the discovery along with other scientists in June during an observation flight over fjords in Chile’s southern Patagonia region. The team has been collecting samples since then. “This is one of the largest strandings worldwide,” said Haussermann, the director of the Huinay Scientific Field Station, which focuses on marine research.
