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.

"Abortion is not nice but it has to be available. If men want to control how a uterus is used, they need first to have a vasectomy at 14 & then a reversal when think now I wish to be a father."

"South Australia’s existing abortion legislation – written in 1969 as part of criminal law – is outdated and obstructive. It’s time to remove abortion from criminal law and regulate it instead under health care law – just like all other health care services."

"All women deserve the right to safe and accessible sexual health care. Criminalising abortion doesn’t stop abortion, it just leads to unsafe practices. Protect Australian women and decriminalise abortion in SA."
