In the state of Queensland abortion is regarded as lawful if performed to prevent danger to a woman’s physical or mental health, despite abortion being illegal in the Criminal Code. This is why it is best to seek medical advice regarding abortion.
It is also important to consider that it is an offence for a woman to attempt to bring about her own miscarriage, as well as to illegally supply the means to procure a miscarriage.
At the end of the day, abortion is YOUR decision. It is illegal to force someone to have an abortion, and it is illegal to stop someone from having an abortion. The decision has to be yours’ and in your best interests. If you would like to know more about your options please contact our caring staff today.
