Join the fight for accessible abortion care

We should all be able to access the reproductive healthcare we need - no matter where we live, or who we are. 

Together, we have helped remove abortion from the criminal code -- but legal barriers were only ever part of the problem. Too many people around the country still face major affordability and service access barriers that mean they can't get abortion care when and where they need it.

Too many patients can't rely on their public hospital for care; can't easily find a healthcare service they can turn to in their area; or have to find $500 on short-notice in order to cover the out-of-pocket costs for this urgent and critical healthcare.

There are clear pathways for change - including supporting and training health practitioners who want to provide abortion care. In 2023 a Senate Inquiry recommended the Federal Government take action to help improve affordability and access to abortion care services. Now we need the Albanese Government to act.

The overturning of Roe v. Wade in the US provides a stark reminder that there is no room for complacency in the fight for reproductive justice. As the Committee's report notes - policies related to abortion are treated as matters of "conscience" for some members of parliament, so we can't assume they'll be supported on party lines. Fair Agenda's advocacy has helped to secure historic legal reform in recent years. Now we must continue to mobilise to show a public mandate for abortion to be not only legal but accessible. Can you join the call for action?

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,

Fair Agenda will email petition signers from time to time with important updates

"Personally seen how access to abortions in Australia is difficult without funds. Waiting lists.. resulting in further trauma and income loss for women."

"Abortion care is healthcare. Each individual person should have the right to decide what is best for their body. No one should be forced to put their life at risk or be forced to carry a pregnancy to term. Decisions regarding healthcare shouldn’t be made by uneducated government officials, who are supposed to be elected to represent and serve the public not take away individual rights."
