Stop harassment at WA clinics

Protect patients from harassment at WA clinics

Everyone should be able to access the healthcare they need free from harassment. But unfortunately this isn’t the case for many people accessing abortion care in Western Australia. In fact, patients have reported being accosted and being called "murderers", and staff have been spat on, and had holy water thrown at their cars.[1]

Safe access protections are desperately needed to ensure patients can access the healthcare they need without fear of harassment or intimidation.

The McGowan Government has announced they are drafting legislation to provide these protections -- and most MPs are expected to be able to cast a personal "conscience" vote. So we'll need to show MPs there is strong community support for them to vote yes, and pass safe zones.

Sign the petition to get involved in the campaign for patient protections.

To all members of WA Parliament,

Everyone should be able to access the healthcare they need free from harassment.

We urge you to support the introduction of 'safe access zones' around abortion clinics, to protect patients and staff from harassment and filming.

Signed,
