Abstract

In this article I argue that repealing abortion laws would help to establish a philosophical foundation for reproductive choice. Legal silence on abortion would signal that what is not prohibited is permitted. Although Australian abortion law and practice has an Alice in Wonderland quality which may have been productive in an evolutionary sense, the pitfalls of this approach to reproductive autonomy are becoming obvious. It is time to dismantle the legal scaffolding and contextualise the questions most relevant to women who are faced with an unplanned and unwanted pregnancy. Women need help not hindrance when making reproductive decisions.
