Abortion campaign continues in Brisbane


Abortion campaign continues in Brisbane

BRISBANE — As part of regular actions around the abortion issue in Queensland, Children By Choice held a successful picket outside Parliament House on April 9.

About a dozen women waved banners at passing motorists, calling for the removal of the abortion law from the Criminal Code. Placards with "Honk if you agree" received a good response from the afternoon rush-hour traffic.

The response is no surprise to members of Children By Choice. In May 1990, they commissioned an AGB McNair survey, which showed that 66% of Queenslanders support Abortion Law repeal.

This was one of a series of Tuesday pickets scheduled for April. For further information, see page 23.
