3. Yes. Criminal law here is federal. Only mundane, ho-hum things are local.
And as far as I know it's always been illegal. Except for rape, fatal defects, or threat to woman's health.

I guess it's less illegal than how the fundies want to make it in the USA.

Anyway, there IS a strong anti-choice movement here. The government wanted to streamline the procedure in cases of fetal anencephaly (NO BRAIN! NO MIND! NO SOUL!) and the fundies went nuts. There were billboards by the roads saying, "President Lula! Don't legalize abortion!"

All for fetuses with NO BRAINS, who die minutes after the (VERY dangerous to the woman) birth.

Fuckers. Bastard fuckers, all of them.
