KALSING, Vera Simone Schaefer. The debate on abortion: the voting of legal abortion in Rio Grande do Sul. Cad. Pagu [online]. 2002, n.19, pp.279-314. ISSN 0104-8333.

This article presents and discusses the two arguments - those of the church and the feminist movement - within the debate in the gaúcho State Assembly in the voting of Representative Marcos Rolim's bill on legal abortion. The conflict is analyzed from Bourdieu's theoretical-methodological perspective, understanding religion as a symbolic system present in the structuring of the individuals' habitus. The debate is understood as a dispute for the monopoly of truth. In this conflict, two different forms of conceiving abortion are affirmed as legitimate representatives of a worldview, and in it, a vision prevailed: the religious one.

Palabras clave : Abortion; Feminism; Religion; Life; Truth.
