Submission to Health Insurance Amendment (Medicare Funding for Certain Types of Abortion) Bill 2013

Submission by Women’s Health Victoria to the inquiry into Health Insurance Amendment (Medicare Funding for Certain Types of Abortion) Bill 2013.

While Women’s Health Victoria does not support sex selective abortion for non-medical reasons, as it can reflect deeply entrenched gender inequality, this submission recommends that restrictions on sex selective abortion are not an appropriate or effective way of dealing with gender inequality.

More information on the inquiry is available here.
