Abortion

Women’s Forum Australia maintains a strong commitment to life-affirming cultural change for women’s wellbeing and freedom. Our vision is for women to be given real choice – no woman should have to choose between her own welfare and that of her unborn child.

Women’s Forum Australia challenges the rhetoric of ‘choice’ promoted by an abortion industry that has a vested interest in promoting abortion as a procedure without repercussion. Abortion and women’s experiences of abortion should not be trivialised and treated as though they are a simple medical procedure.

Women’s Forum Australia believes women should have complete and accurate information and counselling about the abortion decision which includes the physical and psychological risks of abortion.
