A new Parliamentary Petition (as of July 2018) against attempts to bring damaging abortion law which does not consider the real needs of women to Queensland has been launched.
Welcome to Abortion Rethink!
We're a community driven Collective of professionals, Medicos, lawyers, MPs, policy makers and women seeking to improve care for pregnant women by impacting abortion legislation around Australia.
Since we became involved in this space, we've assisted MPs, held Parliamentary Panels and information session, collected women's stories, interviewed Medicos and sat with Australia's elected representatives as they considered legislation that directly impacts women.
Now, we call all to move forward and promote legislation that supports the very best holistic and evidence based care for women experiencing unplanned or problematic pregnancy.
THE SITUATION AS IT STANDS
Queensland's current abortion law was recently referred to the Queensland Law Reform Commission by the QLD Australian Labor Party. Public submissions to the Commission closed on 13 February. You can download Abortion Rethink's submission here.
The Commission is due to report by 30 June 2018 (although they may report earlier) after which it is predicted that a bill based on the Commission's report will be introduced to the Queensland Parliament.
Our 2018 Campaign Launch on 14 February 2018 (yes Valentines Day!) saw a unique Love based launch outside Queensland Parliament House, with a fresh cut single rose delivered to each member of Queensland Parliament along with a 'Save the Date' for our Abortion Rethink Summit on Saturday 17 March. (Official invitation and more details coming soon!)
