“Truth was the first casualty of the debate about the so-called “Public Health and Wellbeing (Safe Access Zones) Bill 2015” in the Legislative Assembly today,” said Dr Katrina Haller, Chief Executive Officer of The Right to Life Australia.


Victoria NOT the Garden State

Julia Medew’s report in today’s (27/10/15) Age “Abortion Tourism thriving in Victoria” reflects a situation that should make the Andrews’ government hang its head in shame.

No longer are we the “garden state” but rather Australia’s “abortion state”.Since passage of the “Abortion Law Reform Act 2008 pushed through parliament by Daniel Andrews – then the Brumby government’s Health Minister – abortions can be carried out up till birth. Indeed, (as per the Medew article) on the demand - by a Victorian woman for an abortion at 26 weeks on psycho-social grounds (Age 23/10/15) illustrated, are expected to be provided.
