The campaign to decriminalise abortion in NSW is in full swing. As part of the NSW Pro-Choice Alliance of over 70 organisations, we are working to decriminalise abortion in NSW by removing it from the NSW Crimes Act (1900) and ensuring abortion is regulated like any other health procedure.
Today, the Reproductive Health Reform Bill 2019 NSW is being introduced into NSW Parliament. Fifteen MPs from across the political divide are co-sponsoring the Bill in a historic move that has never been done in the state’s lower house.
Please show your support for this bill by urgently calling or emailing your local MP, the Premier and/or the Minister for Health – and simply letting them know you support the bill – and want them, as your representative, to vote for it.
A sustained community voice is what we need to ensure this gets through. It will only take 2 minutes of your time.
Contact details are below, or a link to submit via the internet.
More information and abortion facts sheets are available at Our Bodies Our Choices or on our website. Or read today’s excellent article Illawarra Mercury article.
