SA MPs: vote yes to decriminalise abortion

Legislation to provide safe, legal and compassionate access to abortion care in South Australia is being debated by SA parliament.

The proposed bill would remove abortion from SA’s criminal laws, and instead regulate it as a health matter - with rules similar to those already in place in Victoria and Queensland.

The change is desperately needed - and with each member of parliament expected to be casting an individual 'conscience' vote on the Bill, whether or not it becomes law could come down to just a handful of votes. 

When it comes to access to abortion care - recent history has proven we can't take progress for granted. We're going to need to show decision makers strong community support to ensure this passes the parliament. Will you register your support for safe, legal and compassionate access to abortion care?

We all deserve to feel safe and in control of our lives, but right now archaic abortion laws deny South Australians the legal right to decide they need a termination. Instead, abortion is only legal if two doctors agree that a woman’s physical or mental health is endangered by pregnancy, or for a serious foetal abnormality. (You can find out more here)


We all deserve to feel safe and in control of our lives - and to make decisions about our own reproductive healthcare.

Add your name to show your support for the bill to decriminalise abortion - and provide safe, legal and compassionate access to abortion care in SA.

"The responsibility, onis and consequence should rest on the expecting parent(s). We cannot and should not judge their circumstances. Life is precious, and should be regarded with the utmost consideration, but this is not a black and white issue, and therefore the responsibility to elect whether the unborn child reaches life should and must rest with their respective caregivers."

"This is a women’s health issue, I’m not sure why there any opposition. If any woman doesn’t want a termination she is not forced to have one. Meanwhile many women suffer from illness and violence because of pregnancies, these women deserve safety and access to healthcare. What kind of person would say otherwise?"

"I believe women have the right to choose what they want to do with their body. If someone wants to have an abortion they should be entitled to a free safe and legal one."
