The Communist League is the new name for the Socialist Action League.

Founding WONAAC

Members of the Socialist Action League were centrally involved in setting up the Woman's National Abortion Action Campaign which provoked criticism from other feminists who questioned whether the League was using the abortion issue as a platform for its own political ends. WONAAC's uncompromising style certainly alienated many politicians, and over the next few years public support for the repeal of all abortion laws actually declined in favour of making abortion a shared decision between a woman and her doctor, which was the stand taken by ALRANZ.[1]
