The Greens have made a push to decriminalise abortion in New South Wales and ban protesters from harassing women entering abortion clinics.
Despite a 1971 court decision providing access to abortion in NSW on certain grounds, it is still technically an offence under the state's Crimes Act.
NSW and Queensland are currently the only states which have not used legislation to confirm a woman's right to terminate their pregnancy.
The Greens have introduced a private member's bill seeking to decriminalise abortion by removing it from the Crimes Act, which was drafted more than 100 years ago.
