A Question of Life: Human Dignity, Reproductive Rights, and Abortion Politics

With this workshop, we seek to create a space for discussions that reflect on how what is at stake for women in abortion politics and the moral status of the embryo are being framed and contested in a region with different political and spiritual traditions from those in the United States. We will attend to this bioconstitutional moment in Latin American countries where abortion’s legal status is changing and place these moments in global and historical context. This workshop forms part of the ongoing inquiry of the Global Observatory Project into the development of a cosmopolitan ethics on questions at the frontiers of life.
