      Up until the birth of the child a pregnant woman has the right to move freely between States and Territories.

    The case raised a debate regarding the rights of an unborn baby and those of its parents. A year-old mother, had a week pregnancy. The baby was diagnosed to have a congenital heart disease. Knowing about the morbidity related to the disease, the couple decided not to have the baby; however, the pregnancy was already well beyond 20 weeks. Thus, the federal government has acknowledged legally that unborn children, regardless of gestational age, have a right to health care, which is an implied if unacknowledged expression of acceptance of human personhood. Logically these children must possess an intrinsic right to life, otherwise they could not be candidates for health : Robert G. Tardiff.
