NSW deserves safe and legal access to abortion care

It’s 2018, and a person can still be criminally charged for seeking or providing abortion care in NSW.

Aside from being incredibly backwards and outdated, these archaic laws compound the distress and financial burden faced by people who need to end their pregnancy. Not to mention, exacerbating barriers to healthcare for women living in rural areas.

The good news is, we know community pressure can help drive change.

Public pressure from a huge community campaign helped overturn Queensland's century-old abortion laws. Now it's NSW's turn.

Can you help build the pressure for change by signing and sharing the petition for safe and legal abortion care in NSW?

Members of Parliament,

We urge you to vote to decriminalise abortion. 

Signed,

Fair Agenda will email petition signers from time to time with important updates

"As a woman in Queensland, I want & need to have control over my own reproductive issues. We are living in 21st century Australia, a western democracy, not a repressive, fundamentalist society where others make decisions that affect our bodies. It is ridiculous that abortion is still a crime. Legalise abortion today! It’s time for this change – finally."

"Because women should have the right to access this medical procedure without the anxiety provoking ambiguity surrounding Queenslands legal framework. When I chose to terminate an unplanned pregnancy in 2015, the initial research I undertook into my options an rights as a Queensland woman left me feeling very confused and vulnerable. And further than that, the out of pocket expenses that women are expected to have access to when they require immediate assistance of this nature, are unreasonable. Men are not required to make sub difficult decisions, or bear the cost, or navigate the intimidating legal confusion surrounding the choice. Trust me, it was not a decision made lightly, nor a process undertaken without trauma. At the very least, such an experience should be free from fear of criminal prosecution."
