Donate: Decriminalising Abortion in NSW
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.
Reproductive rights remain highly restricted in NSW and Queensland where abortion is a criminal offence unless exceptions apply. While women in both states can and do have abortions, they, and the doctors who perform them, risk criminal charges. Abortion laws must be reformed to reflect the view of Australian women, the wider community and the current clinical practice. Public support for readily obtainable abortion has been climbing steadily and sits at 69% (Australian Electoral study 2016, ANU). The affordability and accessibility of abortion throughout the country and the availability to women in rural and remote communities are major concerns.
