“John Howard has supported a parliamentary debate on abortion as conservative MPs push for a public inquiry into the number and timing of terminations.” (n.c.a)
“Abortion row ‘manufactured’
The Women’s Electoral Lobby (WEL) has accused Federal Government ministers and Governor-General Michael Jeffery of manufacturing a crisis over abortion.
Spokeswoman Eva Cox said … there was no need for a major inquiry into abortions because statistics showed the number of terminations was stable or slowly falling.
“Ministers, the Governor-General and others are manufacturing a crisis about abortion to promote their own moral views,” Ms Cox said.
“The current highly-misogynist dialogue about women who make casual decisions and ‘abort for convenience’ is an insult to many of the women who have considered this difficult decision.”” (n.c.a)

    Not last I checked… I just worry about the erosion of reproductive rights. It’s going to happen in the US, which means more women will die or be permanently scarred from back-street abortions.

  3. Dreeny says:

    Ok fair enough. But if you do are pregnant, no problem. We can take care of the baby you know?
