ABC News reports that the Abortion Law Reform Bill has passed another major hurdle in Victoria.  Already accepted without amendment by the lower house, on Friday, 10 October, 2008 it passed a conscience vote in the upper house by 23 votes to 17.  There are still over 60 amendments to be considered before the bill can be put to a final vote.
