Right to Life Association (NSW) Inc v Secretary, Commonwealth Department of Human Services and Health (1995) 128 ALR 238

The case of Right to Life Association (NSW) Inc v Secretary, Commonwealth Department of Human Services and Health (1995) 128 ALR 238 considered the issue of standing and whether or not an organisation established for the community awareness of the rights against abortion had standing to bring proceedings against the failure of an authority to take action against the continued use of a drug in clinical trials.  It also considered whether this failure to take action amounted to a decision for the purposes of judicial review.
