Health Minister resigns over abortion comments
Health Minister Helia Molina has submitted her resignation to President Michelle Bachelet after the minister sparked controversy over statements related to abortion.
The minister is reported to have said in an interview with the newspaper La Segunda that “In all upper-class clinics, many conservative families have had their daughters abort. The people with money do not need laws, because they have the resources.”
The President has accepted the resignation but has not, as yet, appointed a successor.
