Early medical abortion is legal across Australia but rural women often don’t have access to it

Around one in six Australian women have had an abortion by their mid-30s.

These women come from all age groups and demographics: some are mothers already, while others are child-free; some are partnered, others are single.

Abortion was removed from the New South Wales Crimes Act in October and is now legal in all Australian states and territories, under certain circumstances.

However, many women have difficulties accessing these services, especially in rural and regional areas. This needs to change.
