CUNY Law Clinic Submits Report to UN Human Rights Committee on Reproductive Rights in Philippines

CUNY School of Law: New IWHR Reports on Reproductive Rights in Philippines and Sexual Exploitation in Haiti:

CUNYLawThe International Women’s Human Rights Clinic and the Center for Reproductive Rights jointly submitted a report to the United Nations Human Rights Committee on issues related to the status of women’s reproductive rights in the Philippines. The paper reports on the efforts of the Philippine Government to adopt public health laws that ensure women’s rights. It finds that some specific laws, including a nationwide criminal ban on abortion without any clear exceptions and restrictions on contraceptive information, “constitute an ongoing and immediate threat to women’s life, reproductive health, and rights.” . . .
