"Women shouldn't have to jump through hoops to get HEALTH CARE."

"I want my daughter to live in a New Zealand THAT RESPECTS HER RIGHTS AS A HUMAN BEING."

"I want to help other women have a BETTER experience with THE abortion BUREAUCRACY than I had."

Abortion:

Think New Zealand women have the Right to Choose?

Think again.

The Issue:

Under current law, women don’t have full bodily autonomy. They have to jump through hoops and meet strict requirements set out in the Crimes Act before they can get an abortion.

We believe:

That women have a right to choose for themselves whether to continue a pregnancy or seek a termination, without having to ask permission. Abortion is health care.

Change the Law

In New Zealand, abortion is a crime. That is why it is in the Crimes Act 1961. The law makes an exception to abortion’s unlawfulness for abortions approved by two certifying consultants.

Help! I’m Pregnant

If you think you’re pregnant, your best first step is to get a pregnancy test to confirm. You can buy a test kit at a supermarket or chemist, or visit a doctor or Family Planning clinic.

Abortion: The Facts

Did you know that when our current law passed in 1977 there were only 4 female MPs in Parliament? Or that 52% of women who have an abortion in New Zealand are already mothers?

The Abortion Process: NZ vs USA

We compare the process of getting an abortion in 2018 New Zealand, to the process that’s been in place in the United States of America since the 1980s.
