A group of pro-abortion protesters were present at the Melbourne protest, however police were called in to separate the two causes.

Abortion is decriminalised in every state except Western Australia, while geography plays a major part in accessibility for people in other parts of the country.

However the procedures can cost thousands of dollars and are not available to everyone.
