Election Survey - Western Australia 2013 - Q4


Q4 - Abortion

The WA abortion toll of over 8000 deaths per year – about one quarter of all births – is a tragedy. Studies show that pregnant women who abort their unborn babies, often wrongly believing they have no other option, are more likely than other women to suffer depression, other illnesses and even death in the months or years that follow. WA laws should protect unborn children and their mothers from abortion.

Would you vote to restore protection for unborn children from abortion?

WA Labor Party

WA Labor supports current laws. WA Labor is committed to all information being available to women faced with these difficult decisions. In any vote regarding the amendment of current laws, WA Labor Members would have a conscience vote.

In accordance with the Health Act, termination of pregnancy is a legal right for women. A future Liberal Government will continue to fund and support women's health services in the community and the women's health services based at King Edward Memorial Hospital (KEMH) so that women have access to appropriate health care and advice. This includes access to up-to-date information on services available to assist them with decision making in regards to their pregnancy.

The Greens 

The Greens (WA), recognising that it is a private matter and not an issue for the state, will initiate and support legislation and actions thatensure all women have access to free and safe contraception and contraceptive advice, including safe legal termination of pregnancy.  We also support all women who are considering abortion having access to information about all their options, as long as it is values based not faith based.

Abortion is a human tragedy of our time. Half of our young families have abortion histories. Through abortion we are destroying families wholesale.

As a compassionate caring nation, Australia needs to find a better way to deal with un-planned pregnancies and un-planned abortions; a way that produces a positive outcome for the mother, father and the baby.
