Suggested List of Issues to Country Report Task Force on the United States for the 107th Session of the Human Rights Committee

Report addresses four issues related to women’s healthcare and reproductive rights, including (1) State practice of using restraints on pregnant women in detention; (2) the impact of religious refusal laws on women’s reproductive healthcare; (3) discrimination against immigrant women in accessing affordable healthcare; and (4) restrictive abortion laws that violate the freedom of expression of both patients and their physicians. It makes the case that, individually and collectively, these laws, policies, and practices work to deny women their rights to life, non-discrimination, equality between men and women, freedom from torture or cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment, and freedom of thought, conscience, religion and belief, among others.
