South Australian politicians to decide on extreme abortion law changes soon

Action alert - South Australia

For our South Australian supporters, please contact your Members of the Legislative Council in South Australia urgently.

Tammy Franks MLC (Greens) has introduced the Statutes Amendment (Abortion Law Reform) Bill 2018 to be debated on Wednesday 27 February 2019. Abortion is already available up to 7 months in South Australia.

The bill proposes that abortion:

 

  • Will be allowed until birth with no reason required. They will not have to be performed in hospitals or by doctors.
  • There will be exclusion zones that will give police extreme powers over those who DO NO HARM. This is totally unjust, unnecessary and unsafe.

In Victoria, abortion has been deregulated since 2008 – over 10 years - with no restrictions whatsoever (with passage of Abortion Law Reform Act 2008).

Since 2008 the numbers of late term abortions have skyrocketed - 358 late term abortions in 2013 including one baby aborted at 37+ weeks for maternal psychosocial reasons. Babies are aborted live and left to die – 33 in 2016, 53 in 2012! Source

Please write to all MLCs, using the address: "Parliament House North Terrace, South Australia 5000" and ask that they reject the abortion bill. See the below table.

If unable to write, please email or phone your MLCs.

You may wish to hand deliver the letters to Parliament House (enveloped separately) to avoid postage costs.
