SAAAC and our supporting organisations call on all South Australians to support the repeal of abortion from South Australia’s criminal law.

The current law, written in 1969, is no longer fit for purpose. It acts as a barrier to the provision of best care, and women living in rural and remote areas are particularly disadvantaged. Best quality abortion care is enabled when abortion is a woman’s decision, is affordable for all women, and is accessible regardless of a woman’s location. Abortion should be regulated like any other health service.
