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,

"Abortion should be safe and legal to all women! As a woman, I’ve never wanted kids. I’ve asked to be sterilised and told no for 15 years, but I can’t even access a safe and legal abortion for a child I never wanted? You have no rights to force this on any woman. Abortion is safer than birth in most places! Make it legal!"

"Are we still living in the dark ages? Woman should undeniably be able to make their own decisions about their bodies. How on earth can someone else make the decision for a woman to birth and raize another human being? It’s ridiculous and abortion needs to be decriminalised now."
