The Australian Christian Lobby welcomes this week’s Queensland LNP announcement that, if elected, they will review the state’s recently changed abortion laws. A LNP spokesperson flagged that provisions on abortion coercion, gestational limits and counselling requirements were the main targets for a review.
“The ACL applauds the LNP for taking a strong stance to support women and unborn children,” ACL Qld director Wendy Francis said, “Women are the second victim of Labor’s heartless abortion laws. Women have no protection when they are under coercion to abort their child.
“Vulnerable women need maximum support and information given to them when they are faced with an unexpected pregnancy. Railroading them on a one-way fast-track to abortion is not pro-choice, nor does it respect the long-term impact of that choice.
“Women and indeed all Queensland voters have a clear choice at the October election, with Labor’s controversial architect of the scheme, Jackie Trad, vowing to oppose any rollback of the radical new abortion laws.”
