Foley signals Labor would decriminalise abortion

Alexandra Smith for the Sydney Morning Herald writes:
Opposition Leader Luke Foley has indicated he would decriminalise abortion in NSW after an overhaul of laws in Queensland left NSW the only state where abortion remains a criminal offence.
Mr Foley said a Labor government would ask the NSW Law Reform Commission to review the abortion laws.
Last year, former NSW Greens MP Mehreen Faruqi introduced a bill to state Parliament that sought to have offences relating to abortion removed from the Crimes Act and common law. It was defeated.
