The McGowan Government has today released a discussion paper to introduce safe access zones around premises that provide abortion services in Western Australia. Safe access zones are designed to address concerns regarding the safety and wellbeing of patients and staff that work at, or are seeking access to, legal health services including abortion services. The public consultation is designed to seek feedback on how best to protect patients when accessing these services. It is not the purpose to review or debate the arguments for or against abortion in WA. These protests cause anxiety and distress for patients, as well as staff, which is why the McGowan Government is working to introduce safe access zones.
