THE FACTS [3]

SAAAW and all our supporting organisations call on all South Australians to reject the proposed changes to Abortion Law in SA.

 These changes WILL:

  • remove abortion from the protective cover of the Criminal Law Act.

One important protection that will be removed is the safeguard of

Division 18

83 – Concealment of birth 

  • Any person who, by any secret disposition of the dead body of a child, whether the child died before, at or after its birth, endeavours to conceal the birth of the child shall be guilty of an offence and liable to be imprisoned for a term not exceeding three years.

 This would remove the offence of failing to report the birth of a child that died before, at or after birth.

Hence it will not be required to report those babies who survive the abortion, are born alive, and are then left to die.

Yes, it does happen.
