Abortion in Nepal: Women Imprisoned

This report, produced by the Center for Reproductive Rights and the Forum for Women, Law and Development, documents human rights abuses arising from Nepal's abortion law. The report examines violations of women's rights relating to the abortion ban, as well as violations that occur in the enforcement of the law. Based on interviews with 19 women in prison on abortion-related charges, government officials, health care providers and others, the report documents the violation of internationally and nationally recognized human rights and advocates for the release of women imprisoned under the abortion ban.
