Help end the criminalisation of abortion in Queensland

Right now abortion is still in Queensland's criminal code. These cruel and degrading laws mean that Queenslanders are frequently denied access to terminations at public hospitals, and forced to rely on a limited and expensive private system for this basic reproductive healthcare. 

This year there's a chance to change that. Can you help win the fight for safe and legal abortion?

Later this year Queensland MPs will vote on legislation to modernise Queensland's abortion laws. Whether or not Queenslanders win a right to safe and legal abortion is expected to come down to the votes of about a dozen MPs.

Between now and then we have to do everything possible to make sure those MPs vote in favour of a woman's right to choose. It's our biggest fight to date and it will take everything we've got. 

Can you chip in now to help make this campaign possible?

Later this year the Queensland Government will introduce new legislation to modernise Queensland's abortion laws. These laws could reduce the distress and difficulty Queenslanders in need face in accessing this basic reproductive healthcare. But right now, there's no guarantee those laws will pass. 

Major party MPs are expected to be given a free vote on the issue - and right now it looks like a dozen MPs could decide whether or not Queenslanders are stuck with laws from the dark ages. That's why your support is so important.

What's more - there are also important fights for reproductive rights emerging in NSW -- where MLC Penny Sharpe has plans to introduce legislation to introduce Safe Access Zones around abortion clinics in NSW to prevent the harassment of people entering the clinic. 

But we know the noisy anti-choice majority are also working hard to drag us backwards on this issue. Controversial NSW MLC Fred Nile has indicated he wants to bring a new proposed foetal personhood bill to vote -- a proposal that legal experts have warned would operate as a Trojan Horse on abortion right in the state.

If the past few months have shown anything, it's how well resourced the anti-choice minority are on this issue. Can you help us amplify the voices of the majority of people who believe a woman should have the right to make decisions about, and have control over her reproductive health?
