Media release – Abortion is not a crime

For release: Tue, 06 November 2018

On 26 October the Law Commission released their briefing paper following the request in February from the Minister of Justice to provide alternative approaches that could be taken for the Government to treat abortion as a health issue.  Te Whariki Takapou supports removing the statutory grounds for abortion so that Māori women have easier and sooner access to abortion services.
