Women's health advocates are of the view that in some regions of Sydney, abortion facilities to the poverty ridden women are lacking. Unplanned pregnancy often takes place in poor families. But for them getting abortion is difficult as termination of fetus takes places after the tenth week of pregnancy.
Besides, private clinics offer abortion facilities at escalating prices. This again makes it difficult for a disadvantaged woman to get abortion. In Western Sydney, a number of unplanned pregnancies take place in the poor families.
However, in the region, there are limited numbers of public hospitals or clinics which are providing termination to the poor women. In these clinics, termination is provided to a woman with a pregnancy of less than 10 weeks.
The private clinics although provide termination facilities, they charge somewhere from $300 to $1,500. Woman belonging to poor family cannot afford to pay such high charges. Therefore, women's health advocates are appealing the authorities to bring in reasonable and affordable facilities for termination so that unplanned pregnancies can be prevented.
They are of the opinion that government-funded centralized services should be provided to such women. The health care sector is already grappling with financial problems. But, it has to come up with strategies to ensure the health of the public without being biased.
