New Zealand: Parliament Votes to Legalize Abortion

Abortion is now legal in New Zealand after the Abortion Legislation Bill passed its third reading in Parliament. The bill, approved by a vote of 68 to 51, removes abortion from the Crimes Act. The new law permits abortion on demand up to 20 weeks of pregnancy with consultation with a doctor, and after 20 weeks women seeking abortion will need to meet a statutory test. Previously, the law required that two doctors had to approve an abortion and determine the woman had a “serious danger” to her mental or physical health. An attempt to include “safe zones” in the bill was removed after a voting mix-up and attempts to reinsert it were rejected.
