Legalise Abortion in New Zealand

This petition had 107 supporters

Women in New Zealand are being denied the right to choose what happens with their  body in regard to abortion, this is especially a problem for woman who are not prepared mentally and financialy for children. This needs to change as we are in a generation where equality is one of societys greatest importances, and this is one way to achieve that.

Currently the law states New Zealand citizens are entitled to an abortion if the child faces mental disablilties and/or physical handicaps if the pregnancy continues, or if the woman faces harm by continuing the pregnancy. The only other times a women may get an abortion is if the pregnancy is a result of incest. None of this covers and relation to rape or financial situations or the general will to not have a child as not all pregnancies are planned.
