Abstract

This submission recognises diversity in gender amongst those capable of becoming
pregnant. While this submission uses ‘woman’ throughout, it acknowledges the
experiences of those who do not identify as female. It recommends that the law
surrounding termination of pregnancy be framed to ensure that it accommodates
reproductive justice for all who are pregnant.
This submission focuses on the empowerment of the self-determination of women to
make decisions about their reproductive health as a hallmark of their equality as
citizens.
