Termination of Pregnancy Act 2018


The Termination of Pregnancy Act 2018 (The Act) became law in Queensland on 3 December 2018, allowing all Queensland women to seek a termination of pregnancy without fear of committing a criminal offence. The Act ensures termination of pregnancy is treated as a health issue, rather than a criminal issue.
Gold Coast Primary Health Network (GCPHN) and Gold Coast Health (GCH) have developed resources for clinicians and community members on the Termination of Pregnancy Act in Queensland which can be found on the new Women's Health page.
Women seeking a termination of pregnancy should always consult their GP in the first instance. Women can also self-refer to Marie Stopes any time during their pregnancy.
For more information on the Termination of Pregnancy Act, please visit Queensland Health.
