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.

"Research shows that legislative barriers to abortion don’t stop women from having them. They just increase the risk of unsafe abortions. I believe that the choice to have an abortion needs to be made by individual women and their health care providers within a system which allows for safe, early, easily accessible options."
