Australian City to Offer Abortions For Free In 2023


The city of Canberra will provide free abortions to residents up to 16 weeks pregnant.


The government will pay around €3 Million over the course of the next four years to ensure that residents may ‘make decisions about their healthcare based on what [was] best for them and their bodies’.

 

 

Deputy Chief Minister Yvette Berry said the new initiative was a long time coming.

“This means that individuals will be supported to make a choice about having an abortion without being influenced by financial barriers,” she said.

 

 

“It also means that having an abortion can occur in a time-sensitive manner without being delayed due to an inability to pay.”
