Join the fight for safe, legal and accessible abortion care

The US Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade - stripping millions of Americans of their right to agency over their bodies. It’s a devastating reminder that hard-won progress can be rewound - and that those of us who want a fair and equal future must not only fight for progress; but also be ready to hold ground.

This decision will no doubt embolden anti-abortion forces in Australia. Already the Australian Christian Lobby have called this decision a “tremendous victory” and “just the beginning.”

As a result of decades of advocacy; all Australian states now provide for legal access to abortion. But significant barriers still remain: where you live determines the cost, travel-time required, and number of doctors required to sign off in order for you to access abortion care.

The work of our movement is far from over. We must take urgent action to ensure people can make choices about their own bodies and healthcare. America’s reality can never be our future. Can you add your name to the call for abortion care that is not only legal and safe, but also accessible and affordable for anyone who needs it?

To all Australian parliaments,

We all deserve agency over our body, healthcare and future.

We call on you to protect safe, legal and compassionate access to abortion care - and ensure that anyone who needs abortion care can access it when and where they need it, regardless of income.

Signed,

"As a long time rural advocate – we need urgent help to normalise abortion as part of health care. Stigma is a significant barrier for patients seeking care, impacting providers willingness to take up, deliver or even by trained to offer abortion care, and for health planners to include provision for services within their budgets. #reproductiverights"

"This issue is important from many sides 1/ women’s health and safety. Without options people in situations they don’t want to be in wil be more likely to get this procedure from alternate sources leading to unsafe medical operations no oversight or education of people performing the porocefure.

2/ strain on economic resources

3/ public safety unwanted children can often become neglected and more likely to become criminals and/or live below the poverty line

4/ body autonomy, taking away the right to chose what’s going on/ in your body/
will set a precedent of the government not longer need your permission to vaccinate or carry out medical procedures including surgery regardless whether you want to or not (as a patient)

6/ privacy, in the event the government will have a say or even a duty to prosecute anyone aiding or having an abortion means to determine patients have may include them being permitted to medical information without consent."

"This is important to me because I live in rural Australia where abortion access is so so disproportionately and unnecessarily difficult and compounding for rural people, and also for those rural providers pushing against the grain too. Structural, political, workforce and logistical barriers continue to impinge on the rights for rural people to experience the same reproductive health care as urban people, and that is unacceptable."
