As the year draws to a close we are preparing for a big year in 2019.
The action to remove abortion from every state Criminal Code will continue.With a NSW state election in March there is action underway to make sure thisis achieved in NSW. AWHN is supporting this campaign through an open letter.The letter was launched and is covered Sydney MorningHerald. Youcan join the open letter here.
In addition we have joined with many other organisations in a campaign toachieve modernisation of the South Australian abortion laws. Since beingenacted in 1969 these are no longer fit for purpose and act as a barrier toinequitable access to this vital health service for South Australian women. Youcan join this effort through the South AustralianAbortion Action Coalition’s (saaac) campaign.
With a Federal election due in 2019, the AWHN Board are taking action toadvocate for women’s health as a priority issue. A face to face Board meetingin February will prepare this campaign.
Have a restful end of year as we look forward to 2019.
