Pro-choice activists rallied in Sydney on September 14 to call for the decriminalisation of abortion in NSW.

“Any law that places half the population at risk of criminality simply because of their biology is a ridiculous and unsupportable law”, Jane Caro, one of the speakers, said.

The rally came days before a bill was put before parliament.

A small counter-rally by the religious right was drowned out by pro-choice activists.
