Overview

Haussman (government, Suffolk U. in Boston, Massachusetts) seeks the primary explanation for differing levels of abortion access in Canada, the United States, and Mexico in the variations in constitutional forms and political interpretations of federalism across the three political systems. She argues that when the federal systems of the United States and Canada have the political will to mandate conditions of access, national access to abortion tends to be equalized, and when they retreat from engaging the issue geographical inequities emerge. On the other hand, Mexico's political opportunity structure regarding abortion access stands as a sort of mirror image to the above story, given that abortion is officially illegal at the federal level.
