    High Court decision on Safe Access Zones

    The High Court of Australia has delivered a landmark ruling confirming the constitutional validity of legislation establishing safe access zones in Victoria and Tasmania. This bodes well for the McGowan Labor Government proposed Safe Access Zones in WA. Yesterday they released a discussion paper to introduce 'safe access zones' around premises that provide abortion services in WA. The paper explores how a legislative framework might operate to ensure that patients can access health services that provide terminations without fear of protest, intimidation or harassment. Public consultation has begun and all members of the public are welcome to lodge submissions on the development of the proposed legislation by the 31st May 2019. The discussion paper, the online survey and more information surrounding the consultation process can be found over here.
