U.S. foreign policy and abortion in Nepal: Barriers to saving women's lives

Wednesday, December 8, 2010

This policy brief is drawn from the results of a 2009 Ipas-commissioned fact-finding trip in Nepal to document the impact of U.S. foreign policy as it relates to safe abortion care within the country. This report, based on the results of various interviews, concludes that, despite efforts by the Nepali government and other stakeholders to ensure access to comprehensive abortion care in Nepal, the implementation of abortion restrictions in U.S. foreign policy has created confusion, censorship and ultimately, lack of access for women most in need of safe abortion.
