Discusses the illegal denial of abortions to rape victims in conflict settings, and highlights how US abortion restrictions imposed on all humanitarian aid play a prominent role in this denial. The Global Justice Center (GJC) challenged these restrictions in a shadow report filed with the UN Human Rights Council for the Universal Periodic Review of the United States in November 2010. The brief concludes with a set of recommendations to States, the United Nations, the United States and civil society on what immediate steps they can take to enforce the legal rights to abortions of these victims.
