Nicaragua must lift the total ban on abortion

Nicaragua’s total ban on abortions is endangering the lives of girls and women, denying them life-saving treatment, preventing health professionals from practicing effective medicine and contributing to an increase in maternal deaths across the country.

Amnesty International is urging the Nicaraguan authorities to:

  • Immediately repeal the law that bans all forms of abortion.
  • Guarantee safe and accessible abortion services for rape victims and women whose lives or health would be at risk from the continuation of pregnancy.
  • Protect the freedom of speech of those who speak out against the law and offer comprehensive support to the women and girls affected by the law.

This may be done. The government of Nicaragua must be sensitive to lift the ban on abortion.
