Abortion Law in SA since 1969: Reform is Not Enough

South Australian History Festival 2019

Fifty years ago the SA parliament reformed the criminal law concerning abortion. In 2019 obstructions to women’s access to abortion services remain and parliament is again discussing reform. What’s happened since 1969? What are the current problems? Why will decriminalisation go only part way to ensuring reproductive justice for women? Associate Professor Barbara Baird (Women’s Studies) and Associate Professor Catherine Kevin (History), Flinders University.

Monday 27 May, 6pm at the State Library of SA.
