ALMEIDA, Tânia Mara Campos de  e  BANDEIRA, Lourdes Maria. Abortion and the use of the female body in politics: the Brazilian presidential campaign in 2010 and its current developments. Cad. Pagu [online]. 2013, n.41, pp.371-403. ISSN 0104-8333.

The abortion issue has been in the center of discussions in the second round of the last presidential election in Brazil, which had for the first time a female candidate. The analyzes of the public discourses given during the campaign demonstrates the pressures suffered by the candidates when facing the decriminalization of abortion: religious arguments against abortion in a secular state; the treatment religious groups give to women's bodies; and the clash between the vision of female sexuality as a "territory" of political manipulation and as a prospect of sexual and reproductive rights.

Palavras-chave : Abortion; Politic; Religiosity; Sexual and Reproductive Rights.
