Abstract:     
La posición conservadora sobre el aborto ha impuesto un dogma religioso a la comunidad política en los países latinoamericanos, a través del cual se ha bloqueado la discusión pública y se han establecido prohibiciones para todos los ciudadanos. Este trabajo sostiene que esto es incompatible con la democracia, y muestra cómo el feminismo en México ha desarrollado una estrategia exitosa para enfrentar ese argumento en la esfera pública.

The conservative position on abortion has imposed a religious dogma on the political community in Latin American countries, which has blocked public discussion and has established prohibitions on all citizens. This paper argues that this is incompatible with democracy, and shows how feminist organizations in Mexico have developed a successful strategy to counter this argument in the public sphere.
