Abortion and Democracy offers critical analyses of abortion politics in Latin America's Southern Cone, with lessons and insights of wider significance. Drawing on the region's recent history of military dictatorship and democratic transition, this edited volume explores how abortion rights demands fit with current democratic agendas.
With a focus on Argentina, Chile, and Uruguay, the book's contributors delve into the complex reality of abortion through the examination of the discourses, strategies, successes, and challenges of abortion rights movements. Assembling a multiplicity of voices and experiences, the contributions illuminate key dimensions of abortion rights struggles: health aspects, litigation efforts, legislative debates, party politics, digital strategies, grassroots mobilization, coalition-building, affective and artistic components, and movement-countermovement dynamics. The book takes an approach that is sensitive to social inequalities and to the transnational aspects of abortion rights struggles in each country. It bridges different scales of analysis, from abortion experiences at the micro level of the clinic or the home to the macro sociopolitical and cultural forces that shape individual lives.
This is an important intervention suitable for students and scholars of abortion politics, democracy in Latin America, gender and sexuality, and women's rights.
