Keep Your Politics Out Of My Uterus

I created this piece in November 2020 as a way of channeling my frustration as the SA Legislative Council debated abortion decriminalisation. I was disgusted by the stigmatising rhetoric and inaccurate claims I saw in the press and social media and outraged as a handful of vocal anti-choice politicians and religious leaders tried to impose their values on society. Like most Australians, I’m pro-choice. I trust women and pregnant people to make individual decisions about abortion because they are the experts in their own lives. I was joyous when the law reform bill passed – finally abortion in SA will be regulated like the health care it is!
