La questione giuridica dell'aborto negli Stati Uniti


  • Giacomo Viggiani Università degli Studi di Genova



The paper aims at providing a conceptual analysis of the right to abortion in the United States by analyzing the theoretical debate which has arisen over it since 1973. This way, we want to show how the principle of privacy, upon which this right is built, is an inappropriate legal tool for this issue and has a detrimental effect on poor women. The privacy principle makes in fact the abortion choice not a public right but just a private decision, reinforcing the public/private dichotomy.
