One thought on “Pakistan passes Reproductive Healthcare and Rights Act”

  1. It is not clear from the wording of the law whether or not it can be used to justify suppression of freedom of conscience and religion among health care workers. The impact of the statute may become more apparent over time, especially once the regulations authorized by the law are promulgated.
