Resumo

Este artigo analisa as principais caraterísticas dos serviços de aborto concretizados por organizações feministas em cidades dos Estados Unidos, da Itália e da França entre os anos 1969 e 1978. As ativistas realizaram abortos na clandestinidade, prescindindo da atenção de pessoal médico. Realizamos a reconstrução histórica e uma análise comparativa dos pontos centrais que caracterizaram às organizações relevadas seguindo investigações científicas, informação contida em artigos de divulgação (rádio, jornais e filmes), testemunhas de ativistas e documentos da época, hoje disponibilizados para consulta. Dentre as conclusões de maior relevância, destacamos o objetivo político que procuravam com a apertura de serviços de abortos, da evolução das responsabilidades aceitadas pelas integrantes desses espaços e da sua atenção às mulheres baseada numa práxis feminista.
