Experts urge repeal of century-old law in jamaica
KINGSTON – Legislators are being urged to repeal sections of the more than century-old Offences Against the Person Act which prevent Jamaican women from legally terminating pregnancies.
The appeal came from a group of experts in human rights in patient care at yesterday’s Jamaica Observer Monday Exchange, ahead of International Day for Maternal Health and Rights being observed tomorrow.
