Sample text

The first two conditions represent capabilities that allow individuals to be informed and to express their choice of treatment. A common error often arises: information is mistaken for comprehension. Comprehension is an ability, while information is the content obtained through this ability. The absence of a systematic education does not imply that the faculties of an illiterate person do not function. This mistake appears in the second interpretation. It ignores the differences between comprehension and information.

Casuistry can work in bioethics, but only within the limited interpretations mentioned above. Only with these caveats will it be a useful tool. Ethical principles need a context. In its limited fashion, casuistry can be a complementary analysis that tries to acknowledge the diversity of other societies and cultures. However, principles may not be sufficient to uncover and explain non-ideal situations that Latin America faces. Other theoretical accounts will be suggested in the “Afterthoughts” of this book such as substantive theories of justice and human rights considerations, among others.

A second perspective considers the application of the previous theoretical approach to the abortion issue. It tries to provide a clear answer to how we should act, implement, or virtually resolve the abortion problem. Another possible and interesting view of the abortion issue involves the adoption of a legal and sociological perspective. It poses the problem of legalizing abortion and the prevailing sociological problems in Argentina (such as, the number of illegal abortions, the conditions under which they are carried out, the percentage of deaths, and the implications for women).
