Rights Of Women And Girls In Armed Conflict

EDM number 125 in 2014-15, proposed by Mark Williams on 17/06/2014.
Categorised under the topics of Health services, International law, Military operations and Sexual offences.

That this House notes that victims of rape in situations of armed conflict are defined as wounded and sick under international law; further notes that as such they are entitled to non-discriminatory medical treatment, including counselling and abortion services; observes that UK aid funding should respect the supremacy of international law in respect of the rights of women who have suffered rape in conflict zones; and calls on the Government to review all funding to aid agencies operating in conflict zones to ensure that all aid providers in receipt of UK monies facilitate access to counselling and abortion services for all women and girls impregnated by rape.

This motion has been signed by a total of 29 MPs.
