Anti-abortion speaker to fight deportation in High Court

LAWYERS for an American anti-abortion activist will launch a High Court appeal against his deportation today, after his visa was cancelled by the Federal Government.

Troy Newman spent last night detained at Melbourne Airport, after arriving on a flight from Los Angeles without a visa.

Lawyers representing him have launched an appeal against his deportation, with the matter to be heard by the High Court in Melbourne. Mr Newman co-authored a book that questioned why doctors who abort babies are not executed, but claims he has done nothing wrong.

His wife Melissa Newman told 7:30 the Australian Government should let him go.

"I don't know what they're afraid of. I don't know what they think he's going to do here," she said
