TOO MANY ABOR­TIONS

The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - UP FRONT -

Rex Jory’s ar­ti­cle on Robin Mill­house (Mat­ters for Judg­ment, Aug 16-17) was un­ex­pected and re­veal­ing. Many might ad­mire and ap­pre­ci­ate his cur­rent re­ver­sal of think­ing about the abor­tion leg­is­la­tion for which he was largely re­spon­si­ble years ago.

How­ever, it is re­ally a mat­ter of “the horse has bolted”. Whether peo­ple’s lean­ings are proabor­tion or pro-life surely none can be pleased that the num­ber of abor­tions in Aus­tralia has been around 90-100,000 a year.
