Federal Labor are promising "free abortions" this election - "free" meaning pressuring the states and territories to make more provision for them at taxpayer-funded public hospitals.
Below is an excerpt from Labor's National Policy Platform (from page 114 - can read here).
Under a Labor federal government your taxes would pay for MORE abortions - even late-term abortions of healthy babies of healthy mothers, in taxpayer-funded public hospitals.
To make matters worse, abortions on demand at taxpayer-funded public hospitals would put even more pressure on already pressured public hospitals.
For the sake of life - this election - PUT LABOR LAST.
LABOR'S LOVE AFFAIR WITH ABORTION
Unfortunately Labor has a very bad track record on abortion, in 1984 they made a pro-abortion policy part of their party platform, it's been a downhill decent since then. The Australian states and territories which passed the most severe and extreme abortion laws were all Labor states with a government Bill. The three most extreme laws are:
ACT's abortion laws legalised abortion up to birth for any reason and doesn't give care to babies born alive in abortion. This was an ACT Labor Government Bill.
Queensland'sTermination of Pregnancy Act (2018) legalised for abortion up to birth for any reason and doesn't give care to babies born alive in abortion. This was a Queensland Labor Government Bill.
Victoria's Abortion Law Reform Act (2008) legalised for abortion up to birth for any reason and doesn't give care to babies born alive in abortion. This was a Victorian Labor Government Bill.
It's important to understand community sentiment is against abortion up to birth. In Queensland only 6% of voters agree with abortion up to birth, the majority of Queenslanders oppose abortion past 12 weeks gestation. It's a similar story around the rest of Australia (click here to access Queensland polling on attitudes to abortion).
In Australia the ACT, Queensland, Victoria, Tasmania, WA and the NT babies born alive in abortion are left to die - this is all under LABOR Government legislation. The only states that mandate care be given to babies born alive in abortion are NSW and SA - this was under Liberal governments. National polling shows that of the Australians that have a view on this issue, 75% of them think babies born alive in abortion should be given medical care.
