Experts and community groups urge Queensland Attorney General to act on abortion law reform
May 26, 2017

The Queensland Government should demonstrate a commitment to women’s health and refer abortion to the state’s Law Reform Commission a coalition of legal, medical and community groups said today.

Sunday 28 May marks the International Day of Action on Women’s Health. The day also signals three months since the government committed to this referral which would be a step towards fully decriminalising abortion in Queensland.

Kate Marsh from Children by Choice said, “On this International Day of Action, we’re calling on the Attorney General Yvette D’Arth to act on abortion law reform and make this referral a priority.”
