Life

11. Abortion – freedom of conscience

Section 8 of the Abortion Law Reform Act 2008 compels doctors with a conscientious objection to abortion to refer a woman seeking to terminate a pregnancy to another health practitioner who is willing to perform the procedure. Will your Party honour the State's obligation to freedom of conscience by removing this provision from the statute books, instead inserting a clause that provides that Health professionals and those in training for a health profession who conscientiously object to being involved in a procedure or referring for a procedure should not be compelled to participate, nor should they be put at a disadvantage because of their objection?

12. Abortion – neo-natal deaths post-abortion

The 2007 annual report of the Consultative Council on Obstetric and Paediatric Mortality and Morbidity showed that 52 out of 181 late term babies who were aborted for "abnormalities" survived late term abortions but died neo-natally. Would your Party support a parliamentary inquiry into neo-natal deaths of aborted babies?

13. Euthanasia

The last attempt at legalising euthanasia in the state was soundly rejected when the Legislative Council voted 25 to 13 against the Medical Treatment (Physician Assisted Dying) Bill 2008 on 10 September 2008. Will your Party rule out any attempt to bring on another conscience vote on euthanasia in the life of the new parliament?
