Dominican Republic: Further information: Urge the president to decriminalize abortion

, Index number: AMR 27/5360/2016

The Dominican Congress adopted a comprehensive reform of the Criminal Code which maintains the criminalization of abortion except where the pregnancy poses a risk to the life of a pregnant woman or girl. It is now with the President of the Republic to enact into law. If enacted, it would violate the rights of women and girls.
