Abortion

This Chapter of the Report includes reviews of new Commonwealth abortion legislation, and key litigation in the general area. It also discusses new executive observations on relevance of the leading English ruling in the 1938 Bourne case to Commonwealth legislation. In addition, it considers how cases have addressed issues of spousal consent and parental consent, which has tended to be in favour of freeing women's decisions from the control of others.
