In comparative law, laws that accept abortion- even partially or without causes that justify it- are relatively new. In Colombia voluntary interruption of pregnancy is decriminalized in three situations. The constant in Colombia and in a lot of countries from all around the World is the omission of the father in every topic related with abortion, because it gives the woman a right –practically exclusive- to decide about her body. During this work we investigated and analyzed which could be the father´s rights once the mother makes the voluntary decision to have and abortion in Colombia. To achieve this objective, we made an analysis of each one of the causals exposed in the Constitutional Court decision C-355/2006, having in mind diverse evidence of scientific character. We also made a comparative law study, an analysis of diverse laws, jurisprudence and interviews to psychiatrists, politicians, gynecologists and lawyers.
