AGES Statements

Roe v Wade

27th June, 2022

AGES joins with the numerous gynaecological societies and women’s health advocacy groups worldwide in expressing its extreme disappointment at the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the Roe v Wade decision.

AGES agrees that reproductive healthcare is a fundamental human right.

All women everywhere must have reproductive choice and access to abortion care.

In Australia and New Zealand, after years of abortion law reform and abortion decriminalisation, we are fortunate to have abortion services available to all women.

This US Supreme Court decision is a reminder that no human right can be taken for granted.

We, as a civil society, must remain vigilant in our commitment to reproductive choice for all women.
