In just over a week, NSW Parliament will vote on ‘safe access zone’ laws that would afford patients the privacy and dignity they deserve when accessing abortion services.

Can you take a minute to tell the state MLCs repesenting you in the Upper House to vote in favour of protecting patients from the gauntlet of abuse and harassment that can surround abortion clinics?

It’s going to be a tight vote and it’s unclear which way the numbers will fall. That’s why we need to do everything we can to shore up as many votes as we can before MLCs cast their vote on 24 May.
