The last four paragraphs of the on-line version of an article by Ms Sue Dunlevy which appeared on page eight of yesterday's Sydney Daily Telegraph:
[The Hon. Peter] Dutton [M.P., Opposition health spokesman] gave a "guarantee" he would not move to ban Medicare funding of abortions if he became health minister after the election.
Mr Dutton and Opposition Leader Tony Abbott both voted in 2005 to ban the abortion pill RU486 and some women's groups are concerned about their conservative attitudes .
"We don't propose any change in relation to the abortion laws," he said.
"I can provide an assurance today we don't have any plans and I think Tony has been very clear about that." Dutton said.
Interesting opinion piece dealing with rights:
