Pro-choice picket

BRISBANE — A group of noisy, energetic protesters formed a powerful picket here on July 12 in King George Square under the eye of the recently installed "security camera".

The group called for abortion to be excluded from the criminal code. The public were generally receptive, and many signatures were collected to be presented to the Goss government.

Speakers condemned Premier Wayne Goss for failing to follow through with pre-election promises to amend the law so that all legal distinctions between termination of pregnancy and other medical procedures should be abolished.
