The ABC reports that the Labor MLA Mick Gentleman is maneuvering in the Assembly to force all MLA’s to declare their views on the legality of abortion.
What’s driving this is that for many months now the devout Catholicism of the Liberal Leader Zed Seselja has been the subject of gossip around town with some scurrillous suggestions being made that he could be a member of a particularly controversial grouping within that church.
Zed has told the ABC that he supports the status quo:
- “My position is that I don’t see re-criminalisation of abortion as something that I would support.”
Either way, getting Zed on the voting record on this issue seems to be a major priority for the Government.
