The President of Right to Life Australia Ms Margaret Tighe today condemned the action of the Federal opposition leader Bill Shorten who has promised to provide Tasmanian women with a specially built late-term abortion clinic – disguising its real purpose as a means of providing “reproductive health” for Tasmanian women.

Ms Tighe said “How pathetic that both the local ALP leader, Rebecca White and the federal ALP leader Bill Shorten’s main promise to the women of Tasmania is a place especially built to be used to kill their babies before birth.

She said “As we always say abortion leaves two victims – one dead and one wounded”.

“Meanwhile” says Ms Tighe “we are planning to advertise to remind Tasmanian voters that Labor is no longer the party of the underdog but rather the party that facilitates the killing of babies before birth”.

“Shame Labor”
