Queensland Late Term abortions will Skyrocket with Rob Pyne MP bill

Queensland Late Term abortions will Skyrocket with Rob Pyne MP bill

Queensland MP Rob Pyne’s Health (Abortion Law Reform) Amendment Bill 2016 Bill tabled 17/8/16 http://www.parliament.qld.gov.au/Documents/TableOffice/TabledPapers/2016/5516T1292.pdf
is purely a rehash of his bill introduced only 3 months ago. This bill-again-will provide no element of protection for the preborn child – which presumably Mr Pyne needed to “reassure” most Queenslanders appalled at Late Term abortions.  If Mr Pyne MP looks to Victoria for the construction of his new bill, he should be aware of the outcomes in that state since decriminalisation. So-called safeguards to “limit the numbers” of unborn babies killed have not been effective in Victoria.
