Default The Queensland Law Reform Commission Submissions re: Abortion laws

The Queensland Law Reform Commission has called for the public to make submissions to its review into modernising the state's laws relating to abortion.

Here's a useful summary via Buzzfeed.
Quote:
The terms of reference specifically require the commission to recommend how Queensland should amend its laws relating to the termination of pregnancy to:

remove terminations of pregnancy that are performed by a duly registered medical practitioner(s) from the Criminal Code sections 224 (Attempts to procure abortion), 225 (The like by women with child), and 226 (Supplying drugs or instruments to procure abortion); and
provide clarity in the law in relation to terminations of pregnancy in Queensland.


Here's the link if you're brainstorming / want to give feedback / want to outline a few ideas for others to use in their feedback too. Thank you!
