Australia is at a crossroads. The decade of Coalition government showed how vulnerable our rights and freedoms could be in the face of a political party radicalised by anti-democratic and illiberal ideas.

The decriminalisation of abortion comes into effect in South Australia on the 7th of July1. There was a brawl within the Liberal Party, between the moderates and the conservatives, to remove abortion from the South Australian criminal code and deal with it in healthcare legislation.
