Healthy base for yes vote
MORE than 100 medical professionals and students have rallied to help stop discrimination against the LGBTIQ community and support the campaign for marriage equality.
The Australian Medical Association rally in Sydney was attended by several former federal AMA presidents, who had one message for the nation: “For health’s sake, vote yes. Marriage equality is a health issue … I believe they feel they are discriminated against,” Prof Frankum said.
“I think discrimination has very severe long-term adverse psychological and physical health consequences and as doctors, we are all about people’s health and wellbeing and supporting marriage equality is going to help people.”
More than four million marriage equality surveys have already been delivered across the country.
