This Saturday: rally for abortion rights

A Cairns woman and her partner are facing trial for abortion:

A couple in Cairns are facing trial under Queensland’s anti-abortion laws, with the prospect of years in prison. The Bligh government is lying when they say that the case is related to the way the abortion took place. The charges have been brought under the anti-abortion laws, not drug related laws. This case is putting abortion on trial in an attempt to set a dangerous new precedent on the abortion laws and set back women’s access to abortion. It’s time to stand up for women’s right to control their own bodies. Abortion should not be a crime.

Abortion rights are under attack. It’s time to take a stand:
