Late term abortions

Mark Wong made this Official Information request to Ministry of Health

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Mark Wong to read recent responses and update the status.

From: Mark Wong

Dear Ministry of Health,

Section 21 of the Abortion Legislation Act 2020 states that abortion for the sole purpose of sex selection is opposed by Parliament. A review is due after 5 years, and therefore data on this must be monitored.

Have any abortions been carried out for the sole purpose of sex selection since the introduction of the act?

Since the introduction of the act how many abortions have been carried out at 20 weeks or more?

Of those abortions, how many were carried out because of unacceptable risk to the life of the mother?

Yours faithfully,

Mark Wong

How absolutely horrifying that 244 women took this decision at this stage of the wee babies life.
20weeks or more?
Horrific.
