GENEVA (Reuters) - A UN committee on Tuesday condemned the overturning of the constitutional right to abortion in the United States, saying it was hitting racial and ethnic minorities hardest and asked Washington to take mitigation measures.
The UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial
Discrimination said it was "deeply concerned" that the U.S. Supreme
Court decision in June that ended the nationwide right to abortion had a
"disparate impact on the sexual and reproductive health and rights of
racial and ethnic minorities, particularly those with low incomes."
