The case of Beatriz vs. El Salvador presents an opportunity for the Inter-American Court of Human Rights to address the legality of total bans on abortion under International Human Rights Law. Join the O’Neill Institute for a conversation on the amici curiae presented before the Court in this high-profile case. The speakers will explore the different arguments presented in their respective briefs, with a special focus on gender stereotyping and the criminalization of sexual and reproductive services.
