Children by Choice - an Australian counselling, information and
education service on issues relating to unplanned pregnancy.
Abstract: Since 1972, Children by Choice has provided counselling, information and education services to women experiencing unplanned pregnancy. We are a unique service in Australia, as we provide the only specialist pro-choice counselling, information and referral service on all unplanned pregnancy options. (There are many anti-choice pregnancy counselling services in Australia). Our service has also assisted women to access abortion through financial subsidies and travel arrangements. Children by Choice has a proud history of activism on abortion law reform and expanding women's access to abortion services. This poster presentation will outline the history and services provided by Children by Choice, and discuss the current status of abortion access and laws in Australia.
