Three better ways to 'champion babies' than protesting abortion

Last week, the Queensland government finally dragged itself into the modern era when it voted to make access to abortion officially legal.
I say "modern era", but of course there are still legislatures all over the country (and the world) that are languishing in a state of regressive, misogynist policies that deny women and others with reproductive capacity the right to determine when, if and under what circumstances they become parents. New South Wales is one of them. Curiously, South Australia is another – for despite abortion being relatively easy to access in that state (and I should know, I had two there), it’s technically still listed on the criminal code.
