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.

If you try to apply the oppressor / victim analysis to every novel situation, you get nonsense such as “all men are rapists” (and hence all women are rape victims), or at best a bifurcation: “men are from mars women are from venus”. I’m not a victim, and I’m not from venus - something is lacking from the simple dualist analysis.
