MY BODY MY RIGHT: Enact Safe Zones Around Abortion Clinics in NSW

Currently across NSW people are being physically and emotionally harassed and intimidated by anti-choice protesters when attempting to access abortion clinics. Tasmania, Victoria and the A.C.T. have recognised this violation of our right to private and safe access of reproductive healthcare. All three states have successfully legislated for safe access zones around abortion clinics, preventing protesters from harassing patients, doctors and staff entering and leaving the premises. New South Wales has no such law, thus allowing for this violent obstruction of people's right to safe access to reproductive medical care to continue. My Body My Right notes that intimidation and harassment is being allowed to occur daily, across NSW. This violence needs to stop. We, the undersigned, urge the NSW Government to acknowledge the critical need to protect our community's safe medical access and privacy by supporting the enactment of safe access zone legislation in NSW.
