Abortion is violence against women and their unborn.
Right to Life, in defence of mothers and their unborn, deplores the decision of the Minister of Justice, Andrew Little, to refer the abortion laws to the Law Commission for review. The killing of the unborn is a crime, it is not a health issue. It has been in the Crimes Act since 1856. It is the Minister’s intention to legislate, that the killing of the unborn is no longer a crime but a health service; this is an appalling injustice to women and their precious unborn. It is also his intention to remove expectant mothers and their unborn from the protection of the Crimes Act.

However the unborn children who are classified as wanted will retain the protection of the Crimes Act and of the state.
