Caution against foetus protection proposed laws

September 10, 2013

ALHR wrote to several NSW MPs with concerns about the potential implications which could arise from the Crimes Amendment (Destruction of Child in Utero – Zoe’s Law) Bill 2011 which is being considered by the NSW Parliament.
ALHR urges NSW Parliamentarians to consider any such law changes carefully, to ensure they do not subject women to unwanted scrutiny or an invasion of their privacy when they have lost their foetus as a result of a criminal act.
