ABLE: Non-punishable abortion in Spain: science, care and social movements (1980s and 1990s)

ABLE is a research project funded by the Ministry of Science and Innovation (Convocatoria de proyectos I + D + i 2020, modalidad Generación de Conocimiento, ref. PID2020-113312GA-I00). It is attached to the Department of Pathological Anatomy and History of Science of the University of Granada. We investigate the implementation of the Organic Law 9/1985 that regulated the partial decriminalization of abortion in Spain in three interconnected spaces: scientific, welfare and social movements.

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