Informe Alternativo ante Comite de la Tortura ONU Ginebra

This report is submitted by MAM (Autonomous Women’s Movement), CDC (Center for Constitutional Rights), MADRE and the IWHR (International Women’s Human Rights Clinic at City University of New York School of Law). 1 It addresses the recent repeal of the long‐standing exception under Nicaraguan law that allowed abortions for therapeutic reasons and in cases of rape and incest, and the subsequent enacted legislation that banned all forms of abortion, including medical procedures which result in harm to the fetus. The law, one of the most restrictive of its kind, criminalizes doctors who provide these necessary services and women who seek them or who, in desperation, self‐abort. This law violates the Nicaraguan Government’s obligations under Articles 2, and 16 of the Convention against Torture, and Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment.

A PHP Error was encountered

Severity: Warning

Message: mktime(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone.
