Backyard abortionists can’t offer the luxury of a General Anaesthetic to poorer women, so the ‘patient’ must remain awake while seven agonizing needles are stuck into her cervix. Read more here......... ??? Did you know. . .
= that Howard does NOT ALLOW Federal government aid to be spent on abortion advice?
= that 13% of back-yard abortions result in the woman’s death?
Logical conclusion: This means Howard is prepared to accept that 13% of all women undergoing backyard abortions will die. This is hardly what civilised compassionate people do. However, Tony Abbott, Howard’s Kruel Katholic Killer, doesn't seem at all disturbed by the idea. I wish him a womb. Who has caused more suffering, Jack Kevorkian ...or Tony Abbott?
Fifty federal politicians from all parties, led by none other than a Howard Backbencher (Dr Mal Washer, GP), have rightfully lashed out at the cruelty of this out-dated and repugnant law. It was originally put in place to please fuddy-duddy Independent Senator Brian Harradine way back he held the balance of power. Dr Mal Washer and FunkyPix2 both say the law's an absolute insult to women, and that Howard should have repealed it by now.
The MOST insulting (and sickeningly ironic) bit, quite apart from the woman’s immense pain of and loss of dignity, is that if you happen to survive the ordeal of an illegal back-alley abortion, Howard’s government is happy to give you post-abortion counselling!!! That’s great for those who didn’t die, but for the unlucky 13%, counselling dead people is usually less than effective.
Right-wing conservatives like Howard find no contradiction in protecting insensate embryos the size of a pin-head, while feeling content to kill adults in war or in backyard abortions.Moral of the Story? ..Don’t vote for Howard’s Un-liberal Party... or anyone else who marginalises, degrades or insults women.
Just how far will right-wing pro-life extremists go?
George W. Bush's mates in Tennessee are introducing laws which would require death certificates for aborted foetuses.
I imagine the next step would have to be birth certificates issued after “dinner and a movie”??
