Jackie Trad (pictured) needs to explain what “unbelievable stuff” Conservative Party Senate Candidate Lyle Shelton has said about her abortion-to-birth laws.
Mr Shelton was responding to a tweet issued last night by the Queensland Deputy Premier effectively accusing him of lying about the nature of her abortion law tabled in Parliament last night.
“Ms Trad’s allegation is very serious,” Mr Shelton said.
“It is important that political leaders are truthful, especially when talking about matters of life and death for the most vulnerable members of our community.”
Key claims about the bill Mr Shelton has made are:
- It allows for unborn baby girls to be killed because they are girls through sex-selection abortion, a practice favoured by some ethnic groups;
- It does not penalise men who coerce women to kill their unborn babies, like NRL “stars” Bryce Cartwright and Tim Simona did last year;
- It allows unborn babies to be poisoned and dismembered
- It allows for unborn babies to be killed right to birth even when there is a healthy mother and a healthy baby.
“If Jackie Trad can demonstrate that any of these statements about her bill are untrue, I will gladly apologise," he said.
“I have submitted these questions to Ms Trad’s Abortion Law Facts website and I hope the Queensland Public Service are able to answer these questions honestly,” Mr Shelton said.
