The South Australian Abortion Action for Women (SAAAW) is a broad coalition of people whose goal is to improve the circulation of full information about abortion law, statistics, medical treatment, procedures and outcomes to those it most affects, women.

Members have diverse backgrounds, including medical, legal, academic, advocacy and above all, decades of experience personally supporting women with unplanned or unsupported pregnancies.

We are united by a belief that the best quality of care for a woman is to provide her with as much support as possible and to respect her right to be fully informed. Abortion should be regulated and that is why it is located in the criminal law act. It creates no barriers whatsoever to excellent health care for women whilst providing essential safeguards against the abuse of a procedure that could potentially cause significant harm.
