Two cases currently before the High Court of Australia - 'Clubb v Edwards' and 'Preston v Avery' - raise the validity of state laws that seek to prohibit certain communication and protest outside abortion clinics.

The cases therefore pose the question of how these values are accommodated within the Australian system of representative and responsible government.
