RU-486
abortion drug 'deeply scary' (letter)


by Robert Bom

News Weekly, May 13, 2006

Sir,

In another blow for motherhood and women's health in particular, the Therapeutic Goods Administration has approved importation of the RU-486 do-it-yourself abortion drug.

This is only weeks after Federal Parliament - in an anti-life conscience vote - lifted the ban on the drug and transferred responsibility for its introduction to the TGA.

In his submission on this issue to Parliament, the Hon. Mr Bob Baldwin (federal Liberal member for Paterson, NSW) said: "So dangerous is RU-486 to women's health that pro-choice radical feminists such as Dr Renate Klein, associate professor of women's studies at Deakin University in Victoria, are adamantly opposed to the drug. She describes RU-486 as a 'modern version of backyard abortion - unsafe, painful and deeply scary'."

It is timely that voters around Australia unite and target every seat that is held by members of parliament who voted in favour of lifting the ban on the abortion drug.

There should be no room for parliamentarians who do not respect life and who want to gamble with the health of our women.

Robert Bom,
Rockhampton, Qld.
