In this Parliament, many MPs voted to support the Attorney-General (Vicki Chapman)’s legislation which brought in abortion-to-birth in SA. Critically 26 MPs voted against Minister David Speirs' amendment to restrict access to late term abortion. Those members, including Premier Steven Marshall, used their votes to allow the killing of late-term, viable babies.
However, the Leader of the Opposition, Peter Malinauskas, voted for the amendment.
Liberal Minister Speirs and Labor front benchers Stephen Mullighan and Tom Koutsantonis fought hard to restrict late term abortion. They, and the other 17 MPs who voted for the Speirs amendment, deserve our commendation.
