Family Planning Alliance Australia condemns Alabama’s new law making abortion a crime at any stage of pregnancy.
The restrictive and extreme abortion ban violates women’s reproductive rights and penalises health care practitioners for providing basic health care. As an organisation committed to empowering reproductive choice and improving access to health care, we find this law disturbing and unjust.
To the medical profession who have vowed to stop the implementation of this dangerous law: we stand by you. To the millions of women in Alabama whose rights are in jeopardy: we shout out for you.
Abortion should be safe, legal, accessible and affordable for all women. Everywhere.
