MPs: My choice is no crime

Right now in Queensland and NSW abortion is still considered a crime.

These archaic abortion laws are increasing the distress, danger and financial burden of Queenslanders who need to terminate their pregnancy. They also mean people in need are frequently denied access to terminations at public hospitals.

But with the Queensland election to be held on 25th of November, there's a historic opportunity to secure changes to these cruel and degrading laws.

But it will take all of us. 

Can you join the campaign and help build the pressure for change by signing and sharing the petition?

Right now Queensland's abortion laws are being used to deny women referrals and treatments for terminations at hospitals around the state.

One Queensland woman who had just been diagnosed with metastatic ovarian cancer was told she could not continue chemotherapy or surgery until she was no longer pregnant, but the hospital wouldn't provide her with an abortion. And this year Queensland's laws were used to force a 12-year-old girl to endure court proceedings in order to get permission to terminate a pregnancy.
