Family Planning NSW being promoted by the SRC

We've noticed recently that Family Planning NSW, a pro-choice organisation, is being promoted by the SRC and some SCCs, including pamphlets in some SCC bags, promotion on Student Representation poster boards and the only non-UWS affiliated service in the latest edition of Cruwsible. We feel that those who are pro-choice should be all choice, including giving students the choice of life affirming pregnancy organisations! As such, we're running a campaign to compel the SRC and SCCs to promote life affirming organisations on at the very least equal footing to that of Family Planing NSW.

Abortion Debate in Chile

Recently the abortion debate has been reignited in Chile with the rape of an 11 year old girl by her mother’s partner, which caused the young girl to become pregnant. This is one of the cases which often gets put on a list of “exceptions,” and is one that pro-choicers often use to justify abortion for anyone at any time. Rape as a reason for abortion constitutes less than 1% of all abortions; and at such a young age this case is the rarest of the rare.

Before I delve further, let’s get this straight: the rapist should be severely punished to the fullest extent of the law. There is no justification for what he has done, and what he put the child through is something that shouldn’t even be imaginable, never mind something that happens. This is something that pro-lifers and pro-choicers will agree on. To think that pro-lifers want to justify rape in any stage is plain and simply wrong.

There are a few issues here. The age of the child; the fact the baby was conceived in rape; and that it is a high risk pregnancy because of the age of the child.
