Who has the right to liberty and privacy in the U.S.?

Women’s human rights are enshrined in globally recognized agreements — including the United Nations Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) — that require governments to respect, protect and fulfill women’s rights to liberty, autonomy, nondiscrimination, bodily integrity and privacy.
Increasingly in the United States, however, pregnancy or alleged pregnancies are being used as reasons to unlawfully discriminate against women and deprive them of their most basic rights and liberties.
