Following the U.S. government’s response to the human rights experts’ communication around abortion access in the United States in the context of COVID-19, the Center for Reproductive Rights, together with numerous other organizations, published a statement of solidarity with UN Special Procedures mandate holders. The statement commends the UN experts for shining a light on violations perpetrated against people seeking abortion access in the United States. It also expresses solidarity with them as they seek to hold the United States accountable for its international human rights obligations in a global context of backlash against their work as independent experts.
