The plenary session of the legislature, meeting in person, carries out the evaluation process, based on the proposal presented by the Ombudsman's Office.

This second and definitive debate takes place, after being suspended on January 25 by the president of the National Assembly, Guadalupe Llori, with the aim of extending the time frame for legislators to analyze the content.

Lori stated that “the rate of sexual violence is very high and we continue to discuss this issue, here it is about complying with the ruling of the Constitutional Court. It is about decriminalizing abortion, that girls and women do not go to jail for this reason.

In the 758th session of the National Assembly, the Plenary Assembly may decide to vote on the minority report, if the majority report is denied.

On the other hand, the Ecuadorian president, Guillermo Lasso, stated that he will veto if the legal instrument exceeds the Constitutional Court.
