ABORTION AS A HUMAN RIGHT: THE STRUGGLE TO IMPLEMENT THE ABORTION LAW IN COLOMBIA

This case study is one of six comprising a comparative examination of varied countries’ approaches to the implementation of national abortion service programs, following changes in laws or policy guidelines that established or expanded access to services. In addition to Colombia, case studies were conducted in Ghana, Ethiopia, Portugal, South Africa, and Uruguay, as they had all either implemented new abortion laws or policies, or changed interpretations of existing laws or policies, within the past 15 years.
