Turkey: Amnesty International, Helsinki Citizens’ Assembly representatives and other activists detained during digital security training

“The detention of Idil Eser and others in yesterday’s workshop alongside their trainers is further evidence of the Turkish government’s disrespect for human rights and the rule of law,” said Katie Morris, Head of Europe and Central Asia. “Their detention is the latest in a series of arrests of human rights defenders, lawyers and journalists in Turkey and clearly represents a further tightening of control over civil society.They should be released immediately.”

Center for Reproductive Rights, ACLU File New Lawsuit Challenging Four Abortion Restrictions Passed in Arkansas This Year

The Center for Reproductive Rights, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), and the ACLU of Arkansas filed a new lawsuit in federal district court today challenging four abortion restrictions passed in Arkansas this year. Specifically, the lawsuit—which was filed on behalf of a women’s health care provider in federal district court—challenges a ban on one of the safest and most common methods of ending a pregnancy in the second trimester as well as a host of restrictions that force doctors to notify others--including family members--of a woman’s abortion. Many of the measures could impose significant, if not indefinite, delays on a woman’s ability to access to abortion and miscarriage care. In short, these laws could effectively end abortion care in the state for many women.
