Reader callout: have you had trouble accessing abortion in Australia?

The recent US supreme court decision in Roe v Wade, overturning 50 years of abortion rights for women, has swung the spotlight on to abortion rights and access in Australia.

While Australian states have mostly decriminalised abortion, barriers to access remain in many parts of the country. There are problems with access to health services, costs can be prohibitive, and in many cases, there is still the real issue of stigma.

We’re asking readers to tell us their stories in seeking abortion in Australia, about the impact that it had on their lives.
