TASMANIA, December 21, 2001 ( – Tasmania passed legislation which, according to pro-life groups, will allow virtual abortion on demand on the Southern Australian island state. The ‘emergency’ legislation, for which parliamentarians were recalled from Christmas break, passed both houses of Parliament in just 2 days with only minor amendments. The legislation was initiated when abortionists stopped committing abortions after a medical student complained to police that abortionists were falsifying documents in order to skirt the 75-year-old abortion law.
