The law relevant to women's human rights in childbirth is still unclear in many countries of the world.  That law is being written now, as women increasingly stand up for their rights in legislation, courts of law, policy and practice.  On this page, Human Rights in Childbirth will endeavor to report on new laws and court decisions relevant to birth rights, as they emerge in legal systems around the world.  If you know about legislation or court decisions that should be reported here, please contact us.
