Accessible abortion on demand: Is law reform the solution?

When a Cairns couple were charged over a home abortion using RU486, the case highlighted the inaccessibility of medical abortion in Australia. At the same time the cost of surgical abortion has skyrocketed and services are mainly located in large metropolitan areas. Some feel abortion law reform will alleviate the problem. Is this the case?

Come see an award winning documentary by German filmmaker Sarah Diehl: Abortion Democracy: Poland/South Africa

In her film, she explores the question: Why are illegal abortions more accessible in Poland than legal ones in South Africa?

This 52 minute documentary feature explores and contrasts changes in Poland and South Africa regarding abortion laws and their impact on the lives of women.
