Videla's dictatorship also stood out from others in Latin America for its policy of holding pregnant prisoners until they gave birth, and then killing the women and arranging for illegal adoptions of their babies, usually by military or police families.
Videla had previously been imprisoned for his crimes against humanity but an amnesty allowed him to go free. Public pressure and the thirst for justice, however, ensured he was returned to prison where he would spend the remainder of his days, a pariah who had visited a persecutory plague on Argentine society with his violence.
