March for abortion rights

October 2, 1991

SYDNEY — About 500 people participated in a march for abortion rights here on September 28, international abortion rights day. Speakers at a rally in Hyde Park included Sandra Nori, Labor MP for Port Jackson; Jenny Haines of the NSW nurses' association; Trish Leane for the Women's Abortion Action Campaign and Paula A'Bood for Immigrant Women's Speakout. The march was part of a response to the attempt by right-wing religious bigot and MLC Fred Nile to ban abortion outside public hospitals. Photo by Steve Painter.
