UN report calls for abolition of laws restricting abortion

Catholic World News - September 23, 2011

A report from the UN Human Rights Council has condemned all laws restricting abortion.

“Criminal laws penalizing and restricting induced abortion are the paradigmatic examples of impermissible barriers to the realization of women’s right to health and must be eliminated,” according to a report by special rapporteur Anand Grover. The report goes on to insist that governments must provide support for abortion, as well as abolishing laws against the procedure.
