Three-quarters of people in New South Wales are unaware that abortion remains a criminal offence in the state and almost as many believe it should be regulated as a healthcare service, a study has found.
Published on Tuesday in the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Public Health, a survey of more than 1,000 people in NSW found that the vast majority of voters in NSW remain largely unaware of the legal status of abortion in the state.
