Australian Labor Party
The ALP’s national sexual and reproductive health strategy states that they “support all women to access termination services in public hospitals”. If elected they will work to ensure abortion is provided consistently throughout public hospitals in Australia by tying federal funding to abortion services in public hospitals. Labor will also decriminalise abortion in both NSW and SA where abortion is still considered illegal.
The Greens policy Safe, Accessible, Affordable Abortion supports the decriminalisation of abortion under State law in NSW and Queensland, as well as the removal of criminal provisions in both SA and WA where they still exist. Their policy would also mean increased access to abortions at all State and Territory public hospitals with out of pocket costs cut.
