Reverend Fred Nile's Uninformed Attack on Women's Rights Must BeDenounced
Dr Mehreen Faruqi MLC

Greens NSW MP  for  Status of Women, Dr Mehreen Faruqi MLC, has condemned Reverend Nile’s attempts to draw links between abortion and breast cancer

“Following Senator Abetz’s lead, Reverend Nile is using discredited science to push his agenda.  Linking abortion to breast cancer is misleading and creates unnecessary concern in our society. 
“It should be denounced as an attack on women and their reproductive rights.
“Statements like this from Reverend Nile are symptomatic of the conservative resistance to reform  reproductive law in NSW and highlight how urgent the need is to remove abortion offences from the  NSW Crimes Act.
“It’s time to send a clear message to Reverend Nile, Senator Abetz and the conservative right to  keep their hands off women’s reproductive rights.
“It’s also time to push past this out-dated and uninformed ideological position and decriminalise  abortion law in NSW,” she concluded.
