“The blackest day for mothers and their unborn babies,” said Margaret Tighe, President of the Right to Life Australia, referring to the passage of the Tasmanian 'Reproductive Health (Access to Terminations) Bill 2013.'

Report into Tasmanian abortion bill released

If it were 24 weeks it was thought that would “not get through,” so 16 weeks would “lower the resistance to the bill.”
