ABORTION LAW REFORM ACT 2019 CO-SPONSOR THE HON. EMMA HURST MLC "RELIEVED" AS BILL PASSES IN UPPER HOUSE
Animal Justice Party MP the Hon. Emma Hurst MLC and cosponsor of the Abortion Law Reform Act 2019, is celebrating last night’s landmark upper house decision to finally pass the Bill after weeks of heavy debate.
Quotes attributable to Ms Hurst:
“This is another step toward finally allowing women here in NSW full control over their own bodies.
“After hours of heated debate, the House has finally agreed to support the Bill, support women, and bring us back into line with other states. Now let's hope the Lower House supports the Bill as it is, without further amendments.
“All women, regardless of their income, location, race, culture, or education should have safe access to reproductive healthcare services, including abortions. Last night’s decision is a big step in the right direction to achieving this goal.
