Abstract [sv]

Det första fallet av aids i Sverige diagnostiserades år 1982. Hiv var då ett okänt virus, och aids ett tecken på en snar död. Hiv spreds till en början i redan utsatta grupper som homosexuella män, intravenösa missbrukare, prostituerade och blödarsjuka.

En vanlig reaktion på sjukdomen var rädsla och stigmatisering, inte minst från mediernas sida. Men det bildades också grupper och organisationer som sökte stödja de drabbade, motverka fördomar och arbeta för adekvata behandlingar. Här var bland andra Noaks ark, Venhälsan, Kvinnocirkeln och RFHP (Riksförbundet för hivpositiva) sedermera Hiv-Sverige. Hur arbetade dessa organisationer och vad ville de uppnå? Samtidshistoriska institutet vid Södertörns högskola samlade några av aktivisterna till ett vittneseminarium på temat ”Hivepidemin och rörelserna”.

Abstract [en]

Abortion on demand was introduced in Sweden in 1975. In this article, I will discuss abortion policies and debates in the 1980s and the 1990s. The National Board of Health and Welfare was given the task to spread information on abortion and contraceptives. State-sponsored publications stated that abortion on demand was an important right for women, but—probably for strategic reasons—they also described abortions as being difficult. The anti-abortion organization ‘Yes to Life’ was founded in 1991. Anti-abortion activists demanded (unsuccessfully) for a conscience clause and mandatory counselling, while also opposing the abortion pill Mifegyne or RU 486. In the abortion debate, the psychological impact of abortion and, in particular, possible mental effects after abortion, emerged as a new theme. Attempts by abortion opponents to establish the so-called Post-Abortion Syndrome as a diagnosis in Sweden, however, were unsuccessful. A new moral perspective to abortion emerged, focusing on the ethics of care and on women as moral actors. In the article, I will discuss the (relative) consensus and strong support for abortion on demand in the 1980s and the 1990s, as well as the proactive role that the Swedish state has been playing (since the 1930s) on abortion policy.

Abstract [en]

Using the concept of psychiatrization as an aspect of medicalization, Lennerhed shows how legal abortion in Sweden increasingly came to be seen as a psychiatric issue in the 1940s and 1950s. In the Swedish welfare state, where abortion on medical, eugenic, and humanitarian grounds had been introduced in 1938, politicians, doctors, and the women’s movement protected the notion of good motherhood while abortion was described as a last resort. Women’s demand for abortion was explained by factors such as mental insufficiency. The diagnoses on women applying for abortion can thus be interpreted as a disciplinary process. © The Author(s) 2017.
