Tassie Abortion Push

The public submission period of the Tasmanian legalising abortion push has been extended to 5 April 2013. 

Jacquie Petrusma MP is sponsoring an e-petition on late term abortions. 

More than 80 people attended a silent protest against the proposed abortion law changes according to a report in the Examiner. 

The Tasmanian Govt is proposing to legalise abortion in Tasmania and remove criminal sanctions for woman and doctors. According to the Tasmanian Department of Health and Human Services website, the current laws are “out of step with advances in safe medical practices and community expectations.”

The website says the Department wants to ensure that the law is “not a barrier to vital reproductive health services and to improve the health and wellbeing of Tasmanian women.” Tasmanian Health Minister Michelle O’Byrne is behind the legislation.O’Byrne is a member of Emily’s List, the group of Labor women who support abortion.

Action: FamilyVoice Australia and Saltshakers is asking people in Tasmania to let their views known. The Department of of Health and Human Services is inviting comments to the draft Reproductive Health (Access to Terminations) Bill setting out a revised legal framework. An information paper is also available.

Christian Aged Care providers target of new Anti Discrimination Bill

The exposure draft of a national Human Rights and Anti-Discrimination Bill was released Nov 20, 2012 and follows on from public consultation into a discussion paper on the anti discrimination bill.

According to a press release from Australian Attorney General Nicola Roxon and the Minister for Finance and Deregulation, Penny Wong, the bill includes religious exemptions as under the current scheme, except in relation to aged care whereby Commonwealth funded aged care providers will no longer be permitted to discriminate on the grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity. “This change is consistent with the introduction of protection against sexual orientation and gender identity discrimination and in recognition that aged care services become a person’s home,” the press release states.

The Australian Human Rights Commission has welcomed the release of the exposure draft of a national Human Rights and Anti-Discrimination Bill. Commission President, Professor Gillian Triggs  said in a press release that she particularly welcomed the inclusion of protections against discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Australian Attorney General Nicola Roxon said the project fullfilled a Labor election committment to introduce “sexual orientation and gender identity as protected grounds of discrimination, heralding a significant and overdue reform in this area”

For AHRC press release click here.

For Penny Wong and Nicola Roxon press release click here.

The Bill is now the subject of a Senate Legal and Constitutional Affairs Committee inquiry allowing community feedback before it is introduced into Parliament,

To read the Bill, to read earlier submissions on a discussion paper and for ways to let your views known  click here. 

For further information about this project, please contact the department viaantidiscrimination@ag.gov.au or 02 6141 3424.

The Association for Reformed Political Action, FamilyVoice and other groups had written submissions on a discussion paper that came prior to the bill being formulated.

For more details about the Bill, the dangers of it and ways that you can get involved visit the Saltshakers webpage on it here. Submissions are due 21 December 2012.
