The comments from ALRANZ's Dr Paterson are inconsistent with your accurate explanation of the law. Abortion is not illegal in New Zealand, it is only subject to some safeguards.

Although some of those safeguards may be expensive, they are worth it. The purpose of safeguards is to ensure that the law is as consistent as possible with our international obligations to protect every person's inherent right to life (Article 6(1) ICCPR).
