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,

"Sexual and reproductive health rights for women are fundamental to their human rights. Particularly for vulnerable women, access to safe and affordable reproductive health is crucial. We should join the rest of Australia and ensure women, their partners and doctors no longer have criminal charges hanging over their heads when making choices about reproductive health."

"I shouldn’t have to go to Queensland to get an abortion if I need to – and what if I couldn’t afford to? I certainly couldn’t afford a baby. For those MPs who think religion is somehow relevant to this conversation – I would like to see those same organisations pay to raise children before they force women to pay with their lives."

"This is a long overdue change to recognise women’s right to choose"
