Safe Clinic Zones
Thursday 17 May 2018
Women often get harassed when they go to and from an abortion clinic and Penny Sharpe from Labor and Trevor Khan from the Nationals are working together on a bill to establish 150-metre “safe access zones” around clinics in which it would be an offence to harass, record or distribute a recording to someone without their consent. Safe access zones currently operate effectively in Victoria, the ACT, Tasmania and the Northern Territory.
If the bill comes to the Legislative Assembly, I will vote in favour of it so that women can access the health care they need, but it needs to pass the Legislative Council first and I encourage you to add your voice to the campaign at www.fairagenda.org/safezone.
