Zwischen Moral und Selbstbestimmung - Ein Blick über die Grenzen: Die Abtreibungsregime der OECD-Länder und ihre Bestimmungsfaktoren im Vergleich


Abstract from the author

Portrait des Autors

This article focuses on abortion politics in 22 Western democracies. It shows that there is a significant party impact on abortion policies. Countries which were ruled a long time by conservative parties produced more restrictive abortion laws than countries with a strong presence of left-wing parties in government. Moreover, in some countries the abortion policy is also influenced by direct democracy and constitutional courts.
