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Aside from being incredibly backwards and outdated, these archaic laws compound the distress and financial burden faced by people who need to end their pregnancy.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

"It is a woman’s right to decide whether she has an abortion or not. this decision should not be made by the courts. It is a personal decision and often a difficult one. Having archaic laws in place that make it illegal and inhibits access and funding makes this decision much harder. If an unborn child is unwanted or at risk it is better that it does not come into the world at all."

"Abortion is a very necessary right for women in this day and age, not a privilege for men in power to withhold or bestow at their own whim. NSW law is out-of-date."

"Abortion is a legitimate medical procedure that saves lives; not a crime. It’s status as a crime in NSW is a misuse of the law to devalue the personhood of a woman to below that of the foetus she is carrying. Women contemplating an abortion invariably treat this matter with the seriousness it deserves. It’s time our politicians and government gave the same consideration to the outdated and harmful NSW abortion law."
