Glifosato: el Gobierno les da la espalda a los derechos reproductivos
Catalina Martínez Coral, regional director for the Center’s Latin America and Caribbean region, wrote an opinion piece for El Tiempo on the Colombian government’s refusal to end the use of glyphosate, a herbicide with negative effects on reproductive health. Scientific evidence suggests that exposure to the herbicide can cause birth defects, infertility and miscarriage, and that women living with low incomes are more likely to be exposed. Martinez Coral argues that the Colombian government has ignored international human rights bodies, scientists, and advocacy groups urging them to halt the use of this herbicide.
