Save reproductive choice in Tasmania
The last healthcare service offering affordable access to surgical abortion in Tasmania has closed.
The Tasmanian Health Minister Michael Ferguson was warned this would happen but did nothing. Three services offering the procedure closed during his term. He needs to allocate public funding to rectify this or people will be forced to travel interstate to access the health services they need.
You can do three things to be a part of the campaign to #savechoicetas:
1. Donate to the Early Money Fund to support the election of pro-choice women candidates in the Tasmanian election coming up soon: www.emilyslist.org.au/product/donate/
2. Write to or call Tasmanian Health Minister Michael Ferguson to demand that public funds be allocated to healthcare services to provide affordable access to safe and legal surgical abortion in Tasmania. Call (03) 6165 7701 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
3. Sign the petition and share with everyone you know who believes in reproductive choice: www.megaphone.org.au/petitions/save-reproductive-choice-in-tasmania
