Back to Make Abortion Legal in Queensland

Trial date set for Cairns abortion case

AAP is reporting that the Cairns couple charged over a medical abortion will go to trial on 12 October.

“A young Queensland couple facing criminal charges over a home abortion will face trial in October.

Tegan Simone Leach, 20, and her partner, Sergie Brennan, 22, were last year committed to stand trial for allegedly importing abortion drugs from Ukraine to terminate a pregnancy.

Cairns District Court Judge Brian Harrison on Tuesday set the matter down for a trial starting on October 12 that's to last three or four days.”
