Freedom and destiny: How new technologies are influencing ethics and policy of abortion

Abstract

In this paper, we situate abortion in historical and contemporary struggles concerning women’s rights and responsibilities. We present a recent case in which the right to have an abortion was at the centre of the ethical and legislative debate in order to address questions regarding reproductive freedom, the role of the state and of healthcare professionals. We conclude that new technologies (such as abortion drugs) might affect and facilitate access to terminations in countries where the right to abortion is either not recognised or severely constrained.
