Welcome to ABLE

Legal abortion in Spain: science, healthcare and social movements (1980s-1990s). ABLE is a research project funded through the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation grant PID2020-113312GA-I00. It is hosted in the Department of the History of Science of the University of Granada. We are studying the implementation of the Law 9/1985, which partially decriminalised abortion in Spain in three interconnected realms: science, healthcare and social movements.

This project examines the early history of legal abortion in Spain following the implementation of the Law 9/1985.
