Abortion at the intersection of different actors’ life

Abortion impacts different actors and human rights. This gives a rise to the question: “why is abortion such a difficult concept regarding human rights?”. I intend to argue that abortion is a complicated concept because this concept is at the intersection of several people’s rights. After having discussed the different angles of human rights on abortion, the people able to be pregnant such as ciswomen, trans and non-binary people are the most concerned by abortion right because abortion protects a lot of their rights. Abortion could indeed be seen as contradicting the right to life. However, the status of the unborn child highly depends on the conceptualisation of human rights and each legal system. For the case of the biological father or the unborn child, abortion does not affect significantly their rights. The people able to be pregnant are the most concerned by the action of abortion because their rights are clearly influenced by the obtention of this right.
