Women’s Right to Abortion after Rape in Sudan

In the recently published piece ‘Women’s Right to Abortion after Rape in Sudan‘, Liv Tønnessen (CMI) discusses rape and legal and practical hurdles women must overcome in order to access abortion in Sudan.

In the study, Tønnessen explores women’s access to emergency contraception after rape in Darfur, illegal abortions and medical activism under Islamic law, and the cultural and religious stigma associated with abortion.

The piece is published in CMI Insight, as part of the Protection of Civilians: From Principle to Practice project, and is available here.
