ADF International


Dominican Republic (32nd Session)


ADF International is a global alliance-building legal organization that advocates for religious freedom, life, and marriage and family before national and international institutions. As well as having ECOSOC consultative status with the United Nations (registered name “Alliance Defending Freedom”), ADF International has accreditation with the European Commission and Parliament, the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, and the Organization of American States, and is a participant in the FRA Fundamental Rights Platform.

This report explains why the Dominican Republic must continue to affirm the sanctity of life of all human beings, including the unborn, and why it should resist calls to liberalize access to abortion due to the fact that there is no international right to abortion. In addition, this report deals with the issue of high levels of maternal mortality and morbidity in the Dominican Republic, as well as the need for continued adoption of medical standards and protocols to improve the conditions in which deliveries occur.
