Abortion Politics

AN assurance by Queensland Premier Peter Beattie that his Government will not introduce a bill to liberalise abortion laws offers only some comfort for Catholics.

It does not rule out a private member’s bill being tabled in parliament seeking a watering down of existing laws.

Such a bill would realistically attract a level of support from members on both sides of parliament who would presumably be allowed a conscience vote by their parties.

It is important for a watching brief to be maintained to ensure the pro-abortion lobby does not sneak such a bill through.

What is needed is an undertaking from the Labor, Liberal and National parties that they will not under any circumstances support a weakening of existing abortion laws.
