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,

"there will always be abortions. criminalizing it doesn’t prevent it from happen. decriminalizing it allows women to do it in safe conditions and if a person is against the abortion she is still free to act according to it. criminalising the abortion prevents people from acting according its free will and prevents its own freedom."

"This should not be a pro/anti abortion issue, this should be a pro choice issue. Woman deserve the right to an abortion."

"As the petition states, this law is antiquated and does not reflect the values and rights of contemporary women. It is time we respect a woman’s choice to have an abortion. No woman treats this decision lightly. The law needs to respect her and her rights to be the ultimate decider over her body."
