Terry Bellamak: Law commission has its work cut out on abortion

In February the Minister of Justice, Andrew Little, asked the Law Commission to undertake a review of New Zealand's abortion laws in order to transform abortion from a criminal matter to a health matter. It's a big job. It amounts to nothing less than reconceptualising abortion in the eyes of the law.
It is also a huge opportunity to bring relief to pregnant people who will be consumers of this service in the future.
