Pro-choice organisations are launching a campaign against what they say is a global attack by right-wing forces on women’s abortion rights that’s being felt in Australia.

NSW’s Women’s Abortion Action Campaign, Queensland’s Pro-Choice Action Collective and Victoria’s Radical Women organisation are joining forces to stage the first ever national rally for abortion rights on May 29 in Sydney.

It comes as a Queensland couple face trial under that state’s 1899 Criminal Code for procuring an abortion.

The Right to Life anti-abortion conference has also announced it will hold its meeting of international anti-abortion groups in Sydney this year.

The Campaign for Women’s Reproductive Rights is organising a Victorian contingent to the rally.
