Since our foundation over forty-five years ago, WEL has campaigned for the removal of abortion from criminal codes.
WEL's Reproductive Rights reform work 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.
Ahead of the NSW State Election, WEL is campaigning to decriminalise abortion in NSW.
In December 2018, WEL, Fair Agenda and the Human Rights Law Centre headed up a letter in which doctors, lawyers, healthcare groups and domestic violence services joined community organisations called for the NSW Parliament to recognise the right to safe and legal abortion access in the state.
To seed the campaign we have set up a donations based fund. Fundraising will be a priority over the coming months. Your support will help us achieve this change for the women of NSW.
