Judge María Eugenia Bona issued the sentence March 18 in response to a suit filed by former senator Liliana Negre.
Negre had filed for an injunction against San Luis Province to end “the state of uncertainty” caused by the contradiction between articles contained in the abortion law and the Civil and Commercial Code.
