In August 2018, thirty years after the foundation of the Commission for the Right to Abortion, the Senate of Argentina rejected the Voluntary Interruption of Pregnancy project, with demonstrations outside the precincts by groups both in favor and against it, with international human rights organizations watching and a mass being celebrated at the same time. In spite of the negative result, the demand for the right to abortion managed to permeate the public space and interpellate the State and officials.

In recent years, a new perspective has been taking place in the field of study of collective action, emerging from the pragmatic turn in French sociology and heir to American pragmatism. The perspective was presented as a point of view of analysis oriented mainly towards the development of empirical research that considers public problems as objects of social reality. They are presented as shared ways of defining a situation, involving common spaces for debate and controversy.

The purpose of the following work is to make an approximation to the studies of public problems, observing their theoretical foundations and using as object of study, the struggle for the legalization of abortion in Argentina and the different ways in which the demand of the project was configured, the debate was given legitimacy and it was established as a problem in society.
