The Bill currently being presented by Alex Greenwich this week in the NSW Parliament not only seeks to decriminalise abortion but extend it to include late-term abortions as well. Below is an extract of the pertinent section:

Note that all that is required is the approval of two medical practitioners. What’s more, the reason for terminating the pregnancy can simply be because it’s not in the mother’s best psychological or even social interest.

It’s inaccurate to say that this Bill will lead to a slippery slope of consequences because it is immediately bringing us as a community to the precipice. As such, both sides of parliament should rightly reject such a proposal and seek to strengthen the legal protections for those who are the most vulnerable.

The future of our nation literally depends on it.
