When Abortion is a Crime: Rwanda fact sheet

This two-page fact sheet is drawn from a report by Ipas and the Great Lakes Initiative for Human Rights and Development on the legal and human rights impact of Rwanda’s 2012 abortion law. The report found that Rwandan police unjustly harass, arrest, prosecute and imprison hundreds of women and girls on abortion or infanticide-related charges each year and calls on the Rwandan government to take steps to address this ongoing human rights violation.
