The murder of the unborn is really not an issue when it comes to Australian politics. I brought up the issue face to face to two members of the supposedly conservative NSW Nationals Party with barely a response. In fact it was clear it was an issue they just didn’t care to discuss. If the ‘conservatives’ do not care about the unborn you know the Left will not. Nevertheless, ‘Right To Life NSW believes that there is always a life-affirming choice for any woman faced with a crisis pregnancy that respects both the right to life of her unborn child and is conducive to her own flourishing as a woman.
Abortion may seem like the best choice, or even the only choice, but there is always a better way.
A woman considering having an abortion is entitled to all the facts – about the nature of the unborn child she is carrying; about the known adverse impacts of abortion on women’s physical health – including an increased risk of death – and mental wellbeing; and about the alternatives to abortion, including help to raise the child, fostering and adoption.How many abortions take place each year in NSW?
There are no comprehensive statistics kept in New South Wales on the number of abortions performed.
In the financial year July 2018-June 2019 there were 17,528 claims from New South Wales and the ACT made under Medicare item 35643 – Evacuation of the contents of the gravid uterus by curettage or suction curettage, that is a first trimester surgical abortion.
In the same financial year there were 2,906 claims under the PBS for the drugs used for a medical abortion.
So there were over 20,000 abortions in New South Wales in that year.
However, this does not include surgical abortions performed on public patients in public hospitals, second and third trimester abortions those performed in private clinics for which Medicare is not claimed.’https://righttolifensw.org.au/be-informed/abortion/
