The real tragedy is that it’s criminal

Let me get this straight. Queensland Premier Anna Bligh said it’s a “tragedy” that women may have to go to another state to terminate a pregnancy, but that abortion will not be decriminalised?

Anna Bligh has assured concerned MPs that a Bill to clarify the legality of drug-induced abortions is not a veiled attempt to decriminalise abortion…

Reports of a 24-year-old woman awaiting abortion of her severely malformed 19-week foetus were “a tragedy”, Ms Bligh said.

“I don’t want any woman who is in these sorts of circumstances to have to travel to another state,” she said.

No Anna, it’s a tragedy that abortion is still in the Criminal Code.

Go on, you know you have something to say...
