As we celebrate International Women's Day and support the concept of women's rights being human rights, it's unfathomable that this article, (and the reality that it shines a light on) could share the headlines here in Australia! Public hospitals have been accused of stonewalling women seeking surgical abortions where senior staff are staunchly pro-life or fear an influx of abortions could cripple their already overstretched resources. Dr Emma Boulton, the director of sexual health practice Clinic 66 in Chatswood, said her staff were given a gamut of excuses from public hospitals in both Sydn ..read more
