President of CFM, Roberto D'Avila, said permission would favor low-income women, which seeks to make the place unsafe procedure

The President of the Federal Council of Medicine (CFM), Luiz Roberto d'Avila, should be asked to give explanations in the Senate on the position of the institution, released last week, advocating that women up to 12 weeks gestation should not be criminalized, if they decide to interrupt the pregnancy. This is a set of proposals to expand the possibilities of abortion reform under discussion in the Brazilian Penal Code, since last year in the Senate.

We are pro-life, but we want to respect the autonomy of the woman until the 12th week, has already made the decision to perform the abortion, the president said the CFM Luiz Roberto d'Avila, last week. He clarified that the position was taken by majority of the CFM and also by the 27 regional councils of Medicine (CRMs), in the 1st National Meeting of the Boards of Medicine 2013.

Senator Magno Malta (PR-ES), chairman of the Mixed Parliamentary Front in Defense of the Brazilian Family repudiated the manifestation of CFM. We are adamantly opposed. We are pro-life. The design life is already three months and you will get a fetus to pieces to throw in the trash. We can not live nor applaud such an attitude, he said.

The senator also questioned the unanimous decision of the CFM, the reaction of doctors against [abortion] in Brazil is very large. It is possible that this congress has not had much representation or presenting no doctors in Brazil, but that we want to discuss here in the House.

Malta also said it will send a letter on behalf of front asking the president of CFM to attend public hearings to discuss the issue in both the Senate Special Committee that analyzes changes in the Penal Code, as the Human Rights Commission of the Senate .
