Abortion law under international conventions : A comparative qualitative content analysis of abortion law in Sweden and Poland (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to examine and compare the abortion laws in two members of the European Union, Sweden and Poland, and how the laws are formed in respect to european conventions.  Both laws will be analyzed through a comparative, qualitative content analysis with two theoretical viewpoints consisting of feminist theory and medical-ethics’ view on human worth. In addition to the theoretical analysis both laws are compared to the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union and the European Council’s Convention on Human Rights and Biomedicine, and to each other. 

The results of the study shows that the two abortion laws differ in their core value of human life and the constituted right to life. The study shows that the Swedish law is formed with major respect to the woman’s right to life an autonomy while the Polish is formed with the fetus’ right to life and inability to make decisions. It further shows that the Swedish law is formed in accordance to both conventions while Polands law breaks some articles of the conventions due to prioritizing the fetus’ right to life.
