Enforcement of abortion laws violates human rights

As governments are complicit in the death and injury that results when women cannot access safe abortion, they are even more directly responsible for the loss of dignity and livelihood and the discrimination that occurs when authorities enforce restrictive abortion laws. Ipas will continue to provide grounds for the CEDAW, the Human Rights Committee, and others to recognize that governments violate human rights when they criminalize abortion.
