Abortion in Chile – level 1

16-01-2018 15:00

Abortion is not legal in Chile. Some women want abortion to be legal there. They protest.

They read a message. It asks, ‘Shall it be God, shall it be our father who decides about our bodies?’

Difficult words: abortion (‘killing’ the foetus – a very early ‘baby’ inside a woman), legal (official; people can do legal thing and must not do illegal things), shall (=will; ‘in the future’), decide (choose what to do).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
