Greens: Senator Abetz Should Apologise For Insulting Comments Linking Abortion And Breast Cancer

Acting Greens Leader, Adam Bandt MP, has said that the Minister’s comments made by senior Government Minister, Senator Eric Abetz, linking abortion and breast cancer were insulting and that he should apologise.

“Eric Abetz’s comments are an insult, not just to any woman who has suffered breast cancer or who has had an abortion, but to all women,” said acting Greens Leader, Adam Bandt MP.

“The Minister should not scare young women by peddling his dark, anti-choice ideology on national television.

“This is a Government of old men who do not share modern Australian values.

“We are witnessing just how much this Government has a problem with women’s freedom.

Mr Brandt also stated that as the Minister responsible for promoting women in the workplace he must immediately apologise.

“If Senator Abetz accepts the science on this issue [linking abortion to breast cancer] as he now claims, he should commit to not attending the World Congress of Families Conference.”

The AMA, Cancer Australia, the World Health Organisation, the US National Cancer Institute, Britain’s Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and health authorities in Victoria and NSW have all debunked the suggestion that there is a link between abortions and breast cancer.
