In this submission, Amnesty International provides information as stipulated in the General Guidelines for the Preparation of Information under the Universal Periodic Review. Amnesty International raises concern over the changes in the domestic legal framework in 2006 and 2008 which have introduced a total ban on all forms of abortion in Nicaragua and the impact of this on the right to health, life and physical integrity of women and girls in Nicaragua. The organization also highlights concerns regarding restrictions on the right to freedom of expression, and human rights defenders.
