Speak up to help win safe and legal abortion care in NSW

Right now, there’s a historic opportunity to secure safe, legal and compassionate access to abortion care in NSW.

Laws to decriminalise abortion are being considered by the parliament, and they will be brought to their final vote in the week of the 15th September.

Members of parliament will be given a personal ‘conscience vote’ on the bill, which means that each wavering and undecided MP needs to be personally convinced.

It’s critical we show every MP that their constituents want them to support the legislation as it stands. That’s why every voice counts. Get involved in the campaign by signing and sharing the petition for reform.

Under current NSW law, abortion is a crime for a woman and doctor, except if woman's physical or mental health is in serious danger. These laws have a chilling effect on doctors willingness to provide abortion, and mean many doctors aren't willing to provide terminations in any circumstances.

New laws have been co-sponsored by 15 MPs, and have passed the lower house. Now they are being considered by the upper house, with 20 amendments expected to be proposed in the coming weeks.

 

Members of Parliament,

We urge you to vote to decriminalise abortion. 

Signed,

"Please put women’s rights and welfare first. This is legislation that will have a positive impact on the lives of real women who are in need. Support women, decriminalise abortion."

"Every person deserves bodily autonomy without stigma and fear. The reasons which people request abortions for most commonly are: lack of financial stability, not ready to raise a child, or health issues which could hurt the mother or child. 22 weeks is the cut off for abortions, only 1-3% of abortions are carried out after the 18 week mark, and this is typically due to extenuating circumstances. Please allow the people of Australia and their doctors the comfort of clear and safe legislation in regards to abortion and reproductive health."
