Abortion Law Reform Assn Welcome Moves

Published: Wed 22 Dec 1999 09:54 AM
The Abortion Law Reform Association of New Zealand welcomes the Minister of Justice's response to the latest Abortion Supervisory Committee Report.
We support the addition of economic hardship as abortion access criteria, and we also welcome ministerial calls for the streamlining of abortion access through abolition of the certifying consultant system.
ALRANZ would also like to see sexual violence added as direct criteria for abortion access. We also support the introduction of RU486, the French abortifacient drug, as an early abortion alternative for women who meet the clinical guidelines.
ALRANZ congratulates the Minister on his willingness to face the issue, and we hope he will not face recriminations from our opponents on this issue.
