Abortion Legislation Act 2020

On 24 March 2020, the Abortion Legislation Act 2020 (the Act) came into force in New Zealand. The Act made changes to the provision of abortion services in New Zealand and decriminalised abortion by removing certain offences in the Crimes Act 1961.

The Act disestablished the Abortion Supervisory Committee (ASC) and transferred oversight and monitoring of abortion services to the Ministry of Health.

Previously, doctors applied to the ASC to become a certifying consultant. The Act has removed this requirement and anyone seeking an abortion can access services from a qualified health practitioner.
