Yesterday abortion provider Marie Stopes Australia announced that it “is searching for “brave philanthropists” to bankroll a $3 million fund for women struggling to afford abortion and contraception.”
That all sounds lovely, but are abortion and contraception really the help these struggling women need and should they really be seeking help from an organisation like Marie Stopes?
On the issue of abortion, the organisation’s CEO Michelle Thompson maintains, “it is about giving women choices…women who are in abusive relationships, a young woman with an unplanned pregnancy who wants to go on to complete her studies, or a mother who struggles to support her family.”
