Why do I need to speak to a psychologist?

In NSW, under Section 82 of the Crimes Act 1900 (NSW) it is an offence ‘for any person… to administer a drug to unlawfully procure a miscarriage’. The term ‘unlawfully’ has not been defined but, from previous legal cases, abortion is generally regarded as lawful if it is performed to avoid serious danger to the woman’s mental and physical health. Economic and social factors can be taken into account.

Abortion Law Reform: What’s new?

Abortion is illegal in NSW, under the Crimes Act 1900, although court decisions have established that abortion will not be unlawful if a doctor reasonably believes it is necessary to save the woman from serious danger to her life, mental or physical health. This is how people are currently able to access termination services. However, women as well as their doctors, remain vulnerable to prosecution for unlawful abortion, and removing it from criminal law will provide certainty to patients and doctors about their rights to access these health services.

The driving force in reforming the law has been taken up by Greens Upper House Member Mehreen Faruqi who introduced a bill into NSW Parliament on 11th August 2016 to decriminalise abortion in NSW and provide safe zones for women seeking a termination. The bill would replicate what has been done elsewhere in Australia.

The bill would repeal offences relating to abortion, specify grounds of unsatisfactory professional conduct by a medical practitioner with respect to abortion and to establish exclusion zones in order to prohibit certain behaviour near premises at which abortions are provided.

Labor member Penny Sharpe has put forward a second bill. It would do no more than establish safe access zones around abortion clinics in NSW. George Williams, dean of law at the University of New South Wales believes that “this would produce the odd result of providing protection for a practice that is otherwise outlawed.”

Debate of the second reading of the bill has been adjourned.
