"the Fertility Control Clinic is the leading private provider of pregnancy termination, family planning and reproductive health."
Now I doubt anyone could argue that abortion is a desirable thing. It isn't, but the alternative can be worse. You may have a different view to my own and you are entitled to it. For what it is worth, I think it should be available for the asking up to a mid period of pregnancy and later in some circumstances. Note I said I think, based on nothing really, except I believe it is the woman's right to choose. But I think there should be some rules in place, as there now are.
Some people seem to think getting pregnant and having a termination is a pleasant thing. I am quite sure it is not. No woman plans for this situation to happen. While for very few it may be no more than a long doctor's appointment, I would guess it is a very distressing and emotionally draining experience for the majority.
What women going through such a situation do not need is to be harassed by a motley crew of anti abortion protesters when they visit the clinic. Here is a snip from the Herald Sun:
"The Fertility Control Clinic in East Melbourne says patients have been intimidated by protesters for decades, called murderers and whores and told they were going to hell as they tried to enter the clinic."
Lord Mayor Robert Doyle, Melbourne City Council and Victoria Police seemed to have no problem getting rid of the Occupy Melbourne protesters in the City Square during the global financial crisis, yet none have done anything about the abortion protesters. Protesters is a vague word in this case. They have been described as intimidating bullies.
Can you in your wildest dreams imagine this harassment happening if it was men in the same situation?
Well, finally the FCC is taking Supreme Court action against the council for failing to enforce laws that would move on the protesters.
Gawd love 'em. No one else would.
