We are a pro-choice organisation founded in 1971 to campaign for laws that allow all New Zealanders to make their own decisions on abortion
We support and promote reproductive rights and justice in Aotearoa New Zealand through our publications, a Web site, social media, on-the-ground activism, lobbying, making submissions, outreach and providing speakers and support to other groups. We have never wavered in our commitment to seeing abortion removed from the Crimes Act and treated as a health matter, not a crime.
We have been campaigning for reproductive rights for more than 40 years, and are currently New Zealand's only national pro-choice organisation. We have a solid record of being a fact-based voice for choice, and are a first stop for journalists, researchers, politicians and others looking for information about or support for reproductive rights issues.
More about us
We believe women are people, with the intrinsic human right to decide what happens to their own bodies. We believe the state has no business coercing anyone to become a parent without that person's consent. We believe New Zealand law must be changed to reflect these principles.
