Happy New Zodiac Year!

We are already in April, but it was just at 6h53 PM of the last 20th day that the year started according to astrology. The end of March was marked by the return of the Sun to the Aries sign, the first one of the zodiac, which represents a complete turn of the star and the beginning of 2019. With the transition of the Jupiter’s regency, a planet that taught us a lot about rationality in the face of our possessions in general, Mars takes control within a very intense period.

Which Are The Laws About Abortion in Brazil And What Do They Mean For Women

In Brazil, abortion is illegal and considered a crime. Registered on the Penal Code (1940) in the session of “Crimes against life”, the jail sentences vary from 1 to 3 years to the pregnant woman and, in the case of the doctor who realizes the procedure, from 1 to 4 years.
