Support Abortion Law Reform in NSW

Abortion law reform can happen in NSW this year. But it won't happen unless we convince enough politicians to stand up and vote for this reform.

We need to show them that the community overwhelmingly wants abortion taken out of the Crimes Act and strong laws protecting people accessing abortions from harassment and intimidation.

We need to show them that the community overwhelmingly wants abortion taken out of the Crimes Act and strong laws protecting people accessing abortions from harassment and intimidation.  

Ask your MP to vote for the Abortion Law Reform (Miscellaneous Acts Amendment) Bill 2016.

The bill would :

  • Repeal sections 82-84 of the Crimes Act, relating to abortion offences.
  • Provide for a 150m safe access zone around abortion clinics and service providers to ensure a patient’s right to medical privacy.
  • Require doctors to disclose conscientious objection at the start of the consultation and refer patients to another doctor who does not have such an objection or to the local Women’s Health NSW centre.
