Late-term abortions dominated debate at first hearing on new law

first_imgALRANZ Abortion Rights Aotearoa president Terry Bellamak told the Select Committee she supported the bill overall.But the organisation was backing option A from the Law Commission’s report, meaning there would be no statutory requirement and no specific legislation- it would instead be a matter between a pregnant person and the medical practitioner.Family First National Director Bob McCoskrie didn’t support the bill and argued to the Select Committee the changes would make late-term abortions more accessible and therefore more would occur. Stuff co.nz 17 September 2019Family First Comment: “The Abortion Legislation Bill would make late term abortions considerably more accessible than they are under the current law – currently it’s only available for exceptional circumstances – threat to life of mother or foetal abnormality. Polling Family First had commissioned showed very little support for abortions at 20 weeks and that about half of Kiwis thought that life began when a heartbeat could be detected at around six weeks.”#LoveThemBothLate-term abortions dominated debate at the first session of public submissions on the Government’s new abortion bill.The only two submitters on Tuesday to the special select committee set up to consider the law were the two main lobby groups in the area – the pro-choice Abortion Law Reform Association of New Zealand (ALRANZ) and the pro-life group Family First.The Government’s proposed law, which sailed through first reading 94 votes to 23, would take abortion out of the Crimes Act and remove the current legal hoops to abortion access for women up to 20 weeks of gestation.Currently those seeking an abortion require legal certification from two consultants that having a child would damage their physical or mental health, with even more stringent provisions after 20 weeks.The new law would allow abortions after 20 weeks if one doctor believed it was necessary to preserve the physical or mental health of the mother.Abortions after 20 weeks make up a tiny proportion of abortions – just 56 were performed in 2018, out of a total of 13,282 abortions.Despite this discussion of the topic made up much of the debate at the select committee on Tuesday afternoon.Family First head Bob McCoskrie, who is deeply opposed to the bill and wants to make current abortion law more restrictive, also had a large focus on late-term abortions.“The Abortion Legislation Bill would make late term abortions considerably more accessible than they are under the current law – currently it’s only available for exceptional circumstances – threat to life of mother or foetal abnormality,” he said.He said polling Family First had commissioned showed very little support for abortions at 20 weeks and that about half of Kiwis thought that life began when a heartbeat could be detected at around six weeks.Bellamak and McCoskrie both discussed the exact point at which human rights could be passed to a fetus.“It is definitely live tissue, it definitely has its own DNA. But whether or not that tissue is a person is a matter of belief. And no one should be able to force their beliefs on someone else,” Bellamak said.McCoskrie said a pregnant mother was “two bodies” and both had human rights.READ MORE: https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/115855801/lateterm-abortions-dominated-debate-at-first-hearing-on-new-lawLate pregnancy abortions point of contention at Parliamentary Abortion Legislation Select CommitteeRadio NZ News 18 September 2019Abortions later in pregnancy was a major point of contention at the Parliamentary Abortion Legislation Select Committee.ALRANZ Abortion Rights Aotearoa and Family First New Zealand made their submissions on the Abortion Legislation Bill, which would remove the procedure from the Crimes Act.ALRANZ Abortion Rights Aotearoa president Terry Bellamak told the Select Committee she supported the bill overall.Family First National Director Bob McCoskrie didn’t support the bill and argued to the Select Committee the changes would make late-term abortions more accessible and therefore more would occur.“Currently it’s only available for exceptional circumstances, danger to the life and health of the mother, or the child.“But in this bill after 20 weeks gestation, a baby could be aborted as long as the practitioner, who is going to perform the abortion and immediately there’s a conflict of interest, considers it appropriate in the circumstances.”He said polling commissioned by New Zealand First showed very little support for abortions at 20 weeks.He said he wanted to further restrict the pre-existing legislation from 20 weeks to the point where there is a foetal heartbeat.Submissions on the bill are due Thursday, before a final report is made by the committee in February next year.READ MORE: https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/political/399002/late-pregnancy-abortions-point-of-contention-at-parliamentary-abortion-legislation-select-committeeDivide on late-term abortions at Select CommitteeTVNZ One News 18 September 2019Abortions later in pregnancy was a major point of contention at the Parliamentary Abortion Legislation Select Committee.ALRANZ Abortion Rights Aotearoa and Family First New Zealand made their submissions on the Abortion Legislation Bill, which would remove the procedure from the Crimes Act. “Currently it’s only available for exceptional circumstances, danger to the life and health of the mother, or the child. “But in this bill after 20 weeks gestation, a baby could be aborted as long as the practitioner, who is going to perform the abortion and immediately there’s a conflict of interest, considers it appropriate in the circumstances.” He said polling commissioned by New Zealand First showed very little support for abortions at 20 weeks.He said he wanted to further restrict the pre-existing legislation from 20 weeks to the point where there is a foetal heartbeat.READ MORE: https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/divide-late-term-abortions-select-committeelast_img read more

Chelsea legend backs pursuit of €100m attacking target

first_imgJohn Terry has given his backing to Chelsea’s pursuit of Jadon Sancho, denying that the Blues need more experienced players. “I think the young lads have shown their potential,” he told Frank Khalid on YouTube. “We spoke at the start of the season about the likes of Tammy and Mason coming into the squad and they’ve shown that they’re capable of playing. “I think Sancho is one of the best young players in the world at the moment, so he’d be a great addition to Chelsea’s squad.“It would make us better as well but the ones that have come through, the Billy Gilmours, Tammy, Mason, Reece, it’s endless, isn’t it? There have been so many positives this season. “So I think every Chelsea fan since I came through the ranks, that’s all Chelsea fans wanted to see: the youth team players and the younger generation coming through and making their first-team debuts. We’ve seen that in abundance this year.” Terry – now working as a coach himself as Dean Smith’s assistant at Aston Villa, the club with whom he finished his career after nearly two decades with Chelsea – also believes that his old teammate Lampard is proving himself to be the right man for the Stamford Bridge hot seat. “It’s been incredible because we said there was no one better, to give Lamps the job.

I think the expectation has been excellent because the group that they’ve had this year have done really, really well.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… Terry’s former teammate Frank Lampard has overseen a year of progress at Stamford Bridge having put faith in youngsters like Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount and Reece James, with the club currently sat fourth in the Premier League. Chelsea are free to make transfers again in the summer after not bringing any new bodies in during January, despite their transfer ban being lifted. One name to be heavily linked is Jadon Sancho, who seems intent on a return to the Premier League after flourishing in Germany across three seasons with Borussia Dortmund. A range of suitors are queuing up for the England winger, with Manchester United confident that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s own track record of working with youngsters may persuade him to head to Old Trafford. United are not the only side in need of reinforcements out wide, though, with Chelsea having struggled to replace the goal output of Eden Hazard since his summer departure. Christian Pulisic and Willian have only five Premier League goals each this season, with the latter joined by Pedro in facing an uncertain future due to his contract expiring in June. Sancho could be added to replenish their options on the wings, and a replication of his record of 16 goals and 17 assists in all competitions this season certainly would not go amiss at Stamford Bridge. And former Blues captain Terry believes adding Sancho to their exciting crop of young talent would be a shrewd move by the club.
