BESIO R, Mauricio. Proyecto de ley sobre despenalización del aborto: análisis ético. Rev. chil. obstet. ginecol. [online]. 2015, vol.80, n.2, pp.175-180. ISSN 0717-7526.

The project of law presented by the government of Chile, in January 2015, at the National Congress, which seeks to regulate "the decriminalization of pregnancy termination in three causal", has caused much impact on public opinion and in the medical groups, especially in those dedicated to the care of pregnant women. The project at a first glance looks, without abandoning the respect for the life of an unborn child, to remove the punishment on the female and the doctor who performs an abortion only in three grounds. It bases this on various and contradictory principles in each of the three figures. A second look reveals that the principle of respecting the lives of patients, who founded medical profession since its beginnings, is replaced by the women's decision to continue or not any gestation. In effect, the way how is structured allows definitively, that should be the woman the one that determines the patient's statute of her son or daughter, and therefore of deserving the health professional's care of them. This work reveals a hidden principle, totally opposed to the respect the life of every human being without any discrimination.

Palabras clave : Medical ethics; induced abortion; pregnancy interruption; abortion; therapeutic abortion.
