Federal election 2016: Greens pledge $15 million to make abortions easier

Cameron Atfield reports in the Brisbane Times (24.5.16) on the Greens’ announcement that they would seek to commit funding to help ease the legal and health system imposts of seeking an abortion.

‘The Greens have pledged to make it safer, cheaper and easier for Australian women to get abortions in a $15 million election commitment.

‘In an election announcement to be made on Tuesday, the Greens will pledge to support the decriminalisation of abortion at a state level and cut out-of-pocket expenses through a review of rebates.

‘It would also introduce “truth in advertising” laws for pregnancy counselling and collate accurate data on terminations in order to reach demand.’
