(42nd Session)

ADF International is a faith-based legal advocacy organization that protects fundamental freedoms and promotes the inherent dignity of all people.

This submission raises concerns with Guatemala’s Law Against Femicide and other Forms of Violence Against Women, whose overbroad definition of ‘psychological violence’ opens the door to arbitrary and unjustified restrictions of freedom of expression. Furthermore, the report highlights the need to strengthen maternal health care, particularly in rural areas, to tackle Guatemala’s high maternal mortality rate while remaining steadfast in its commitment to protecting and promoting the right to life.
