Hundreds rally in NSW over abortion bill

Hundreds of supporters of a bill to decriminalise abortion in NSW have descended on state parliament with many holding signs stating “Our body, our choice” and “No uterus, no opinion”.

Darelle Duncan was one of those rallying on Wednesday in favour of the Reproductive Healthcare Reform Bill, which she says will give women the right to control their own lives.

Almost 50 years ago, a then 22-year-old Ms Duncan was unable to access an abortion, and her baby was later forcibly removed for adoption.

“I understand totally what it means to be in a position where you are forced into a pregnancy,” Ms Duncan told AAP.

“It changed my life irrevocably. It’s a trauma that one never gets over.”
