Guatemala: Discriminatory law puts lives and rights at risk

On 8 March, the Guatemalan Congress approved Decree 18-2022, which toughens the criminalization of abortion, including for miscarriages, prohibits inclusive sex education and discriminates against LGBTIQ+ people. This law puts at risk the rights and lives of thousands of girls, women and LGBTIQ+ people in the country. We demand that Congress shelves Decree 18-2022 and refrains from pursuing the approval of any other decree that violates the rights of women, girls and LGBTIQ+ people.
