Stop harassment at WA clinics

Stop 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, staff at some clinics have reported being spat on, called murderers, and having 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.

Every state except Western Australia and South Australia already has safe access protections in place. The McGowan government has initiated the process and committed to introducing safe access zone legislation.

But you can bet that the anti-choice minority will be fighting reform every step of the way. So we need to show Premier McGowan and all members of the WA parliament that there is strong community support for safe access zones. Will you add your name to the call and sign the petition?
