Re State Election Nov 27

www.repealsection8.net.au has been set up to log responses to a single question for all candidates for election and re-election. The question relates to Section 8 of the 2008 Abortion Reform Bill that overrides doctor’s liberty of conscience:

Will you, if elected (or re-elected), vote to support a motion to repeal Section 8 if such a motion is introduced?

YES / NO / undecided

Signature:  ____________________________________

The actual mechanism to achieve this may be something different than repeal but the spirit of the question is clear in asking for support to remove this provision. Please note we are not asking you to move such a motion – just asking for your support. Nor are we seeking your view on abortion or the Abortion Reform Bill – just the conscience provision.

Your response will be recorded on the website as an aid to voting.
