The Abortion Legislation Committee has called for submissions on the Abortion Legislation Bill. I urge everyone who wants reform to submit - the bigots certainly will be, and they've monopolised this conversation for too long. As for what to put in your submission, I'd suggest listening to health professionals, and pushing or "option A", which would require removing new section 11, and amending new section 10 to remove any reference to a time limit. While its not in the bill, expressing opposition to a referendum on a fundamental human rights issue may also help focus the minds of MPs on opposing NZ First's SOP when it comes up.

Submissions can be made at the link above and are due by Thursday, 19 September 2019.
