SOCIEDAD ARGENTINA DE PEDIATRIA. Subcomisión de Ética Clínica. The principle of autonomy in pediatrics under the new Civil and Commercial Code of the Nation: A communication of the Subcommittee on Clinical Ethics. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2016, vol.114, n.5, pp.485-489. ISSN 0325-0075.

Autonomy, understood as the power of self-decision by having full acknowledgement and free will, has been one of the pillars of Bioethics since its beginnings. The new National Civil and Commercial Code brings major changes and updates as well as additions, all of which have great implications in the practice of health rights. This whole makes a strong mark in the participation of children and adolescents as subjects of law. It is important to bring this new understanding to our attention as pediatricians, as it will involve the resolution of the daily medical practice.
