We are back from the lunch break and on Article 11.

Acosta Vargas is asking about the situation of migrant workers and women in domestic work. Also noted the focus on tourism and other forms of development.

Cmtte: Asking about women in senior management roles; sexual harassment, and asking about complaints and prosecutions; CRPD ratification and any quota for differently-abled people to access employment.

Question about health care, obstetrics, and abortion. Acknowledging it is illegal, but also that women have the right to make decisions about their own bodies.

Issue raised about the legal age of consent being 16 and people not able to access SRH care and contraception until 18.

Sex ed not working, 15-24yo particularly vulnerable.

The #Bahamas ranks high, along with Sub-Saharan Africa on HIV/AIDS and a large proportion of the population at risk. Need to work on prevention. How will gov't do this?

Abortion is illegal except for very limited cases. How many women have accessed legal abortion? Will you expand access for rape victims?
Any numbers on back-door abortion?
