Call to remove abortion from the Crimes Act

From The Panel, 4:21 pm on 21 May 2019

More than 13,000 people have signed a petition calling for abortion to be removed from the Crimes Act. The petition was set up less than a week ago on the Parliament website and will stay up until July.

Under current law, it is illegal to have an abortion unless it is approved by two specialist doctors.

We ask the panellists if they believe it should be removed from the Crimes Act.
