Heading towards a two-tiered society? No, not again!

A woman carrying a dangerous pregnancy was refused an abortion by a major Melbourne public hospital because of the current "political climate".

She was told an emotive debate over late-term abortions was behind a decision to deny her the legal procedure.

The woman involved who has requested anonymity said,

"I'm concerned this could happen to other women and that some wouldn't have the financial means, support or resourcefulness to go elsewhere,"

"If the private option is somehow removed, women will lose their choice."

You are right Suki, a two tiered system where only the rich can afford abortions would be unpalatable. I would like to see an equal, one tiered system where no one could have abortions.

You support a two tiered system yourself: one slanted against the unborn, in favor of the living.

Your belief system would seem to include current contraception choice. Women who use a IUCD (a popular choice of contraception by older women who have given birth) are comfortable with conception, but not implantation.

I'm not currently getting pregnant, yet fuck all the time. Is this allowed?

Are you interested in a cheap rate for a spare womb?

Marcel, you sound like you have a two tiered system, too; foeti you want to save and doctors you want to bomb and shoot.

Will you prevent the foeti you save from going to medical school and specialising in gynaecology? How much control ya want, mate?

Have a nice cup of shut the fuck up.
