    New Zealand Passes Historic Law To Decriminalize Abortion I5OK6

    From REUTERS

    REUTERS News Staff wrote:WELLINGTON (Reuters) - New Zealand has passed a landmark bill that treats abortion as a health issue rather than a crime, a major reform in laws that have been unchanged for more than four decades.

    New Zealand Passes Historic Law To Decriminalize Abortion BB11nCmL

    The reform passed through parliament late on Wednesday by a vote of 68 to 51.

    The legislation modernizes abortion laws in place since 1977 and proposes that a woman should have access to abortion until 20 weeks of pregnancy, with advice from her doctor.

    After 20 weeks, a pregnant woman would require a test and two doctors will have to agree an abortion is the right decision. These conditions for post-20 week pregnancy were tougher than the government's original proposal.

    Under the old law abortion was an offence in New Zealand, and a woman could only legally get an abortion if two doctors certified that continuing the pregnancy would result in danger to her mental or physical health.

    “For over forty years abortion has been the only medical procedure considered a crime in New Zealand. But from now abortions will be rightly treated as a health issue,” Minister of Justice Andrew Little said in a statement after the law was passed.

    The passing of the bill is seen as a win for Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's center-left coalition party, ahead of a general election in September.

    Decriminalizing abortion was one of Ardern's campaign promises when she was elected in 2017 but plans to change the laws were delayed as lawmakers argued over the bill.

    New Zealand is the latest country to liberalize abortion laws. South Korea's high court overturned a ban on abortion in April, while Ireland legalized abortion in a referendum.

    In the United States some conservative-leaning states have taken action to curb abortion rights, however.

    Whether here in the United States or New Zealand or anywhere in the world, I will never agree that an abortion is right unless it is a danger to the mother's health. This is the slipperiest of slopes you can get on when it comes to a topic like this, but for me and this platform, I'll be more than honored to argue it.

    Just Saying.
