The Reproductive Rights group focuses on legislation that gives women access to reproductive services including safe and affordable abortion, autonomy over their own bodies and related women’s health issues
Australian women’s reproductive rights remain highly restricted by State and Territory law in many states. Women are still denied autonomy over their own bodies and their reproductive choices can even be subject to criminal prosecution. Abortion laws must be reformed to reflect the view of Australian women, the wider community and the current clinical practice. The affordability and accessibility of abortion throughout the country and the availability to women in rural and remote communities are major concerns.
