Morrison lambasts Labor for raising abortion before election
PM says debate does not ‘unite Australians’ after Labor promises to require public hospitals to provide services
Wed 6 Mar 2019
Scott Morrison has blasted Labor for raising the issue of publicly funded abortions just before an election, saying he did not believe the discussion to be “good for the country”.
The prime minister said the issue was better left to the states and territories to decide and he was “disappointed” the opposition had announced its policy “in a very politically charged context”.
