As you may be aware there are currently two bills before the New South Wales parliament seeking to decriminalise abortion and to create so called “safe zones” around the clinics.
Abortion is very harmful to women and children. These new laws being proposed will add to the existing problem of abortion and will do nothing to address the needs of vulnerable pregnant women.
I would greatly appreciate if you could promote the signing of a petition by concerned citizens over the next few days. These bills may be debated and voted on in the next few weeks.
The petition can be downloaded here: NSW Abortion Law Petition
Greg Donnelly MLC will table the petition in parliament.
