The Human Rights (Children Born Alive Protection) Bill 2021

George Christensen MP has proposed a bill in the House of Representatives called "The Human Rights (Children Born Alive Protection) Bill 2021". The bill is expected to be tabled in early August 2021.

Currently, in most Australian states, doctors are not required to provide medical assistance to children born alive as a result of an abortion. These babies are left uncared for until they die. They deserve the same rights and medical treatment as any other human being.

Under the proposed bill, when a child is born alive as a result of an abortion, attending medical practitioners must take action to save the child's life. If they do not act to save the child they will face significant financial penalty and probable deregistration as a medical practitioner.
