Opinión ciudadana sobre el aborto: Uruguay y América Latina
In most Latin American countries abortion is illegal, and there are mitigating causes. However, studies for countries that have been releasing processes for more than two decades, such as the United States, show that different attitudes remain the same, ranging from pro-life to pro-choice views. This work, from Latinobarómetro 2007, analyzes the patterns of individual attitudes towards abortion, focusing on the same degree of justification in terms of socioeconomic, religious, and country characteristics. The OLS estimates that the average for 18 Latin American countries show that most individuals who justify abortion are forty-year old or younger men, highly educated, with low level of deprivation of goods, low religiosity, and who do not profess the catholic or evangelic religion. Analyzing by country, Uruguay is where abortion is most justified, and unlike the average, women justify abortion further than men, the impact of education and socioeconomic status is significantly greater, and marital status is not significant as well as the degree of religiosity.
