'People of faith have as much, but no more, right as other people to engage in public deliberation on matters of law or ethics.

It's time that abortion was decriminalised and treated as a healthcare matter not a criminal justice one.โ € โ € 'Many will no doubt be aware that Northern Irelandโ€™s abortion laws are among some of the strictest in Europe. However, abortion is still illegal under the Offences Against the Person Act 1861 throughout the UK, and is only permitted in certain circumstances thanks to the 1967 Abortion Act.'โ € โณโ € #freesafelegal #abortionrightsni #thenorthisnext #nowforNI #prochoice #thenorthisnowโ € ๐Ÿ”œโ € [image shows botticellis venus with dash reading my body my choice ] โ € https://buff.ly/2ZFaicB

Doctors for Choice Northern Ireland said they were opposed to healthcare professionals in the region being forced to report women and girls to the police if they procured abortion pills.โ € โ € A Northern Irish woman faces a criminal prosecution later this year for buying abortion pills online for her then 15-year-old daughter. The woman, who cannot be named to protect her daughterโ€™s identity, is accused of two charges of unlawfully procuring and supplying abortion pills in 2013.โ € โ € At present, doctors and medical professionals in Northern Ireland who find out their patients have used abortion pills could be prosecuted if they fail to report them to the authorities. In their first ever statement, Doctors for Choice Northern Ireland said no one should be prosecuted for buying or using abortion pills.โ € โ € The organisation said: โ€œWhilst abortion pills are safe and are widely prescribed in the same form and dose to treat miscarriage within the hospital setting in Northern Ireland, some people can experience complications such as heavy bleeding or infection.โ € โ € โ€œWe encourage anyone who has taken abortion pills outside a hospital setting to not delay seeking medical assistance or attending Accident and Emergency should any complications, such as heavy bleeding or becoming unwell, arise. A delay in treating heavy bleeding or infection can put a personโ€™s health and life at risk.โ€โ € โ € The group said the issue put the patient-doctor bond of trust at risk.โ € โ€œWe believe that doctors have a duty of care and confidentiality to their patients and do not believe that healthcare professionals should report patients to the police for taking abortion pills. Patients should be able to trust their doctor to respect their confidentiality and act in their best interests. The current legislation puts doctors in a difficult position and erodes and undermines the integrity of the doctor-patient relationship,โ€โ € . โ € โ € #thenorthisnow #nowforni #prochoice #abortionrightsni โ € [image shows medical bag with life raft and the letter SOS on water] โ € . โ € โ € https://buff.ly/2yUwFyM

What Actually Happens When You Decriminalise Abortion?โ € โ € Before 2017, medical terminations of pregnancy were effectively not legal and they weren't done at all, but we did have [surgical] abortion available in a limited number of circumstances in a hospital and two doctors had to sign off on it, which really restricted access in the NT, where there is only a small number of hospitals and a small number of specialists available," Murdoch told BuzzFeed News.โ € โ € "There was a decrease in abortions overall as far as we can tell," she said. "The data before 2017 wasn't great but from what we have it looks like it was around 900 per year before decriminalisation and then about 700 afterwards."โ € โ € This is in line with global research from the Guttmacher Institute, which found abortion rates have fallen over the past 25 years and that countries with the most restrictive abortion laws also have the highest rates of abortion.โ € โ € โ € "I previously worked as a counsellor at [The Royal Women's Hospital in Melbourne, Victoria] and after decriminalisation in 2008 the floodgates didn't open and the sky didn't fall in," Chen told BuzzFeed News. "The abortion rate remained relatively consistent."โ € โ € โ€œLegislation is not the only answer, but it is part of the answer and we need to keep talking about access reform not just law reform,โ€ Brennan told BuzzFeed News.โ € โ € "Before, people who had money could just fly interstate, and those who didn't would wait for several weeks for a surgical termination."โ € โ € The key to improving access is not just changing the law but having hospitals willing to create referral pathways, she said.โ € https://buff.ly/2YQgSMfโ € [image shows NI activists cling for change similar to Australian states, with signs in front of a big stage with a banner saying international women's day]

"In the early 1970s eighty women declared themselves to be criminals in a national newspaper, taking out an advertisement as a provocation in the campaign to decriminalise abortion.โ € โ € Fifty years on and abortion is still technically a crime in NSW. A bill to be debated in NSW Parliament this week seeks to finally change that. Should it pass women in NSW will finally have the freedom to make our reproductive health choices without facing the challenges presented because abortion is criminalised.โ € โ € The decriminalisation of abortion in NSW has wide-reaching community support. The Bill set for debate is co-sponsored by fifteen politicians from across the spectrum. It has substantial cross-bench support but it is not without opposition.โ € โ € Today, like in the 1970s, and while ever abortion is criminalised, some women face hurdles to access abortions and of course, for many it is difficult to speak out.โ € โ € ๐—ช๐—ฒ ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐—ฑ๐—ถ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐˜€๐—ฒ ๐˜„๐—ผ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ป. ๐—ข๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—ฎ๐—ฏ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐—ฒ๐˜…๐—ฝ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐—ฒ๐˜€ ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐˜ƒ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ. ๐—ช๐—ฒ ๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ ๐—ต๐—ฎ๐—ฑ ๐—ฎ๐—ฏ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป๐˜€ ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐˜€ ๐—ฎ๐—ด๐—ผ ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐˜† ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฐ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜๐—น๐˜†.โ € โ € ๐—ช๐—ฒ ๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ ๐—ฎ๐—น๐—น ๐—ต๐—ฎ๐—ฑ ๐—ฎ๐—ฏ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป๐˜€ ๐˜‚๐—ป๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐—ก๐—ฆ๐—ช ๐—น๐—ฎ๐˜„๐˜€ ๐˜„๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ต ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—ณ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฒ ๐—ฎ๐—ฏ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐—ฎ๐˜€ ๐—ฎ ๐—ฐ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—บ๐—ฒ. ๐—ช๐—ฒ ๐˜„๐—ฎ๐—ป๐˜ ๐˜๐—ผ ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—น๐—ฎ๐˜€๐˜.โ € โ € ๐—ช๐—ฒ ๐˜€๐—ฎ๐˜†: ๐—”๐—ฟ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜ ๐˜‚๐˜€.โ € โ € ๐—”๐—ฏ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐˜€๐˜๐—ถ๐—น๐—น ๐—ฎ ๐—ฐ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—บ๐—ฒ ๐—ถ๐—ป ๐—ก๐—ฆ๐—ช. ๐—ก๐—ผ๐˜„ ๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐˜๐—ถ๐—บ๐—ฒ ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—ฟ ๐—ถ๐˜ ๐˜๐—ผ ๐—ฐ๐—ต๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ด๐—ฒ.โ € โ € You can help end the criminalisation of reproductive health choices in NSW by sharing this statement and/or your own abortion story using #ArrestUs "โ € โ € Here @Wendy_Beacon explains why she signed the #arrestus statement.โ € . โ € We see many similarities in last minute wrecking amendments and restrictions to a decriminalisation bill supported by public opinion and healthcare professionals. โ € #Solidarityโ € #NSWpolโ € #freesafelegal โ € โ € https://buff.ly/2Kmg6Cp
