Resumen

COPPOLA, Francisco. Interrupción voluntaria del embarazo y objeción de conciencia en Uruguay. Rev. Méd. Urug. [online]. 2013, vol.29, n.1, pp.43-46. ISSN 1688-0390.

Summary In October 2012 Act 18.987 for the Voluntary Interruption of Pregnancy was passed in Uruguay. This law contemplates the right to conscientious objection, although it lacks conceptual clarity and there was no debate during the discussion of the bill. Thus, declarations by both congressmen and professionals reflect there is confusion regarding such objection. Conscientious objection implies an individual (in this case a health professional) refuses to act in a certain way, which action would be legally enforceable, on account of conscientious issues. Therefore, conscientious objection is an authorization, provided certain requirements and limitations are observed, to refrain from observing a law. This article explores the existence of degrees and nuances within conscientious objection, the importance of distinguishing objectors from pseudo-objectors, whether a previous declaration is necessary or not, its regulatory mechanisms and in particular, the extreme event in which it were necessary to "sacrifice" the freedom of conscience.

Palabras clave : ABORTION LEGAL; PERSONAL AUTONOMY; CONSCIENCE PHYSICIANS [ethics].
