What does the overturning of Roe vs Wade mean for Australia?

The overturning of the Roe vs Wade ruling by the US Supreme Court has reignited public debate on abortion in Western Australia. This has led the McGowan Labor Government to announce that they plan to ‘modernise’ WA’s ‘out of date’ abortion legislation.
