Cross-party bid for NSW abortion reform

A Medical Privacy Forum was held on Wednesday night in response to the long-running intimidation of women attending Albury’s Engelhardt St clinic. 

NSW Greens MP Mehreen Faruqi urged the meeting to get behind a push for cross-party support for a bill to decriminalise abortion in the state, which will include “privacy zones” to exclude protesters outside termination clinics. 

“I would call last night’s forum inspirational,” organiser Dr Pieter Mourik, a retired gynaecologist and spokesperson for Right to Privacy Albury, told Medical Observer.
