Government of Women’s Bodies: Abortion and Conscientious Objection Protocols

Resource Type: Array Publications

In March 2012 the Supreme Court of Argentina ordered each province to dictate Medical Protocols to remove “barriers” in access to legal abortion. However, this was interpreted differently across provinces, leading to different models of how to terminate a pregnancy. The purpose of this paper is to show the link between these Medical Protocols with cultural resistance against abortion. It will also show how Medical Protocols along with a widespread practice of conscientious objection have became tools that hinder access to women’s health. This resource is in Spanish.
