01 May 2009: Leslie to Participate in NSW Abortion Law Reform Forum

The NSW Greens have decided to start the debate on reforming abortion law in New South Wales. NSW common law on abortion is identical to the Victorian Menhennitt judgment, which was recently reformed and updated by more women-centred legislation passed late in 2008 by the Victorian Parliament.

Join Leslie, Victorian Green MP Colleen Hartland and Walkley award- winning radio documentary maker and academic Eurydice Aroney, whose grandmother died from a backyard abortion, at NSW Parliament house to learn more about achieving successful law reform and how you can get involved.

What: Abortion Law Reform Forum

When: 1st May 2009, 12:30–2:00pm

Where: Jubilee Room, NSW Parliament
