The Law Commission has today provided a ministerial briefing paper to the Minister of Justice, Hon Andrew Little, advising on alternative approaches that could be taken to abortion law if the Government decides to treat abortion as a health issue.

The briefing paper was requested by the Minister in February this year. It examines the criminal aspects of abortion law, the statutory grounds for abortion and the process for receiving services.
