Status – CURRENT
Covers: surgical and medical abortion, late-term abortion, number of abortions, current legal context, access to abortion, attitudes to abortion, abortion myths, current issues in Victoria, and good practice in abortion service provision. Although abortion is now legalised in Victoria, there remain ongoing issues relating to the ability of women to access services. Measures are needed to improve access to termination services, raise awareness about the options available to women, and initiatives that address unintended pregnancy.
