(United Nations) – El Salvador is currently undergoing something the UN calls the Universal Periodic Review, a fairly new human rights process that looks at countries’ implementation of various human rights treaties.
And even though no UN treaty mentions abortion, ten European countries along with Australia and Canada have criticized El Salvador for its ban on the practice.
Australia, Canada, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Iceland, Luxembourg, Slovenia, Norway, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom each made statements of complaint against El Salvador that were included in the report just released by the Human Rights Council.
According to Rebecca Oas of C-Fam, such pressure has regularly been mounted by European countries, mostly against countries from Latin America.
