Honduras: Attack on sexual and reproductive rights
On 21 January, the Honduran Congress approved the first reading of a bill that would reform the Constitution to increase the number of votes needed to change the articles that prohibit abortion and marriage between people of the same sex. If ratified, the bill would effectively block future attempts to decriminalize abortion under any circumstances or to legislate in favour of equal marriage. The bill must be ratified by three quarters of the Congress and will be discussed on 28 January. It is expected to be voted on this same day. We demand Congress to reject this pernicious bill.
