Abortion decriminalised in NSW
26th September 2019
Very proud to have been a part of history today when the Reproductive Health Care Reform Bill passed through the Parliament.
This is what women have waited 119 years for and what 70% of people in NSW wanted.
NSW is now in line with the rest of Australia and abortion is now considered and treated as a health care issue and not a legal one.
Thank you to everyone who has contacted me and my office over the past few months with their views on this issue.
My thanks and congratulations also to my dear friend and Independent colleague Alex Greenwich and to Tammie Nardone who have worked so hard to deliver this important reform.
