Abstract

ASTETE A, Carmen; BECA I, Juan Pablo  and  LECAROS U, Alberto. A glossary for discussion about abortion. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2014, vol.142, n.11, pp.1449-1451. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872014001100012.

Abortion and its diverse possible legal regulations is one of the major and toughest social controversies. This debate is even more problematic due to biases, prejudgments, different ideologies, beliefs, religious doctrines and political pressures. Chile has recently begun a new national discussion with an evident confusion, both in juridical and clinical terminology, which makes very difficult to achieve the necessary plural debate for a social and political consensus. The authors structured an academic collaborative project to create a glossary as a contribution for a discussion based on clearly defined notions about the different terms used in the abortion debate. Twenty-two concepts were selected and their definitions were reviewed and discussed by more than 50 different specialists. The final version of this glossary in Spanish language is presented.

Keywords : Abortion, eugenic; Abortion, induced; Abortion, legal.
