USA: Protect the right to access abortion
In June, the United States Supreme Court will rule on the future of abortion rights in the USA. A leaked draft of that ruling shows that the court is poised to overturn Roe v. Wade entirely, ending all protections for abortion rights in the USA and leaving to individual states to regulate abortion. When the court overturns Roe, 26 states will outlaw abortion totally or near totally.
It’s clear: the United States is regressing when it comes to the human right to abortion care.
Access to abortion is a human right. Under international human rights law, everyone has a right to life, a right to health, and a right to be free from violence, discrimination, and torture or other cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment. Forcing someone to carry a pregnancy against their will — for whatever reason — is a violation of those rights. Abortion must be legal, safe and accessible for all.
Help us ensure all people have access to abortion care. Tell the USA: stop the abortion bans and protect the right to abortion care.
