Together for Choice: Take Action

#1. Email your MP

The Queensland Government has just announced proposed new laws for safe and legal abortion access, based on recommendations from the Queensland Law Reform Commission. These laws provide almost everything that Fair Agenda and other pro-choice groups have been calling for, so it's critical they're met with a huge wave of public support.

Can you help flood MPs with support for these changes, so they can be left in no doubt about what their constituents want them to do? The messages they receive in the first weeks will be critical. That means we’re going to need to make sure our are voices louder than the noisy and well-resourced anti-choice groups.

Send a message to your MP to call on them to vote for a woman’s right to control their body and life.

 

#2. Ask your friends to get involved

To win this, it's going to take a huge show of pro-choice support from across the Queensland community. 

Can you help win safe and legal abortion in Queensland, by asking your friends and family to get involved in the pro-choice campaign?

#3. Ask to meet with your MP

Your MP could have the casting vote - and as a constituent you have unique power to influence their vote. The power of one-on-one conversations with constituents can’t be underestimated, which is why we’re asking Fair Agenda members across Queensland to sign up to come along to constituent meetings with their MP.

We’ll support you throughout the entire process, including helping organise the meeting, and connecting you with other Fair Agenda members to come along to the meeting. In short - we'll be there every step of the way.  

Just click here sign up to meet with your MP, and we'll get in touch about next steps!

 

#4. Donate to power the campaign

To have the best chance of winning this fight we're going to need your help. We are up against a vocal anti-choice minority that is willing to spend big arguing to protect a cruel and archaic system that hurts Queenslanders.

Can you chip in to help support volunteers and Fair Agenda members like you influence decision-makers in their electorates, to produce hard-hitting video content that tells the stories of the people affected by the current laws, and to show undecided MPs that the vast majority of Queenslanders support the right to choose? https://www.fairagenda.org/togetherforchoice_donate

 

#4. Sign the petition

The Queensland Government has introduced legislation to modernise these laws, and a dozen undecided MPs are likely to decide the vote. This is our opportunity to secure desperately needed change — but convincing enough MPs to pass laws for safe and legal access to abortion care will take all of us.

Stand together for choice and help build community pressure for MPs to vote for change by signing and then sharing the petition calling on MPs to decriminalise abortion. Because every woman has the right to feel safe and in control of her life.

#5. Tell your story 

There’s no denying that the conversation surrounding a woman’s right to abortion care is a polarising one. But given the political nature of the issue, there’s a risk MPs won’t hear the voices they need to hear most — the people affected by these laws. The people who have real and lived experience going up against Queensland current abortion laws.
