Safe Access Zones Laws held up by High Court
Safe access zone laws in Victoria and Tasmania preventing anti-abortion protesters from harassing women seeking medical treatment will stay, following a judgment delivered by the high court on Wednesday.
The court threw out the cases brought by anti-abortion campaigners Kathleen Clubb and Graham Preston in a comprehensive, 200-page decision.
Victoria introduced safe access zone laws in 2016 by Australian Sex Party, having campaigned on the issue throughout the 2014 State Federal Election.
Congratulations to all those people, groups and campaigners who defended Safe Access Zones all the way!
