SA MPs: vote yes to decriminalise abortion

Legislation to provide safe, legal and compassionate access to abortion care in South Australia has just been introduced in parliament.

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. 

Recent fights in Queensland and NSW have proven that we can't take progress for granted. We're going to need a massive community campaign to ensure this passes the parliament - can you help make that happen by signing up to the campaign, and asking your friends to join you?

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)

 

To all members of the South Australian Parliament,

A woman knows what is best for her health, her body and her family. She should be able to access safe and legal abortion care if she needs it.

We urge you to vote to decriminalise abortion, and legislate for safe access to facilities providing this healthcare.

"Because it is 2019 and it is absolutely crazy that Australia is so behind on this basic aspect of women’s rights. Keep your outdated and inhumane ideas off of our reproductive organs. In an overpopulated world, don’t force women to have unwanted children. Instead, fight real injustice and to make this country a better place."
