    Call for more male responsibility

    February 07, 2005
    MEN who father unplanned children in one-night stands or outside relationships
    will be forced to pay maintenance under a Liberal backbencher's plan to cut
    abortion rates.

    Queensland Liberal Santo Santoro has circulated a policy paper proposing ways
    to encourage women considering a termination to keep the baby or offer it for
    adoption.

    One of his proposals is for men who father unplanned children during a
    one-night stand or outside relationships to be forced to pay maintenance,
    helping reduce the need for a woman to terminate the pregnancy.

    "Males have got to accept responsibility for their actions," Senator Santoro
    said.

    "It is only fair that the male parent of an unplanned child that the mother
    decides to keep or carry to term and offer for adoption should make the same
    contribution to that child's support as other men whose cases currently fall
    within the ambit of the Family Law Act.

    "If we are to consider action to ensure that women are provided with viable
    options to abortion – including financial support from the community – it
    is important to ensure also that the father of the child, where he can be
    identified, is made to meet his responsibilities."

    Senator Santoro is the latest federal MP to raise the contentious issue of
    changing abortion laws.

    Nationals Senator Ron Boswell re-ignited the issue last week when he lodged
    questions on notice to Health Minister Tony Abbott, seeking details of the
    number of abortions, who gets them, what they cost and possible alternatives.

    Pro-life Labor backbencher John Murphy has already foreshadowed a private
    member's bill requiring disclosure of more information about the extent of
    abortion.

    Prime Minister John Howard has given qualified support for a parliamentary
    debate on abortion through a private member's bill.

    But he has stressed the Government will not sponsor any legislation aimed at
    restricting Medicare funding of abortion.

    Government frontbencher Amanda Vanstone said today she was confident that a
    private member's bill aiming to cut Medicare funding for abortions would not
    succeed.

    "I am satisfied any such bill would not pass," she said.

    Labor questioned the need for politicians to be having the abortion debate.

    Opposition frontbencher Penny Wong said it was unfortunate such an emotive and
    highly divisive debate had been re-ignited.

    "I think frankly the majority of the Australian community believes this is an
    issue a woman should be discussing with her doctor, and obviously in
    consultation with her family and friends," she said.

    Opposition health spokeswoman Julia Gillard said any move to cut Medicare
    funding for terminations would see the re-emergence of dangerous backyard
    abortions.

    The Federal Government effectively finances abortions through the Medicare
    rebate, private health insurance rebate and its funding to state-run hospitals.

    "What we would end up with is women with wealth being able to privately finance
    their abortions and women without wealth being left to their resources and
    perhaps having to rely on backyard abortionists," Ms Gillard said.

    Yes, but in lower numbers than intercountry adoptions. My city (pop
    300,000) had 33 adoption orders made last year but only 2 were for
    Oz-born children. We also had 4 local babies placed for adoption here
    last year.

      Well that confuses me too, because I thought I remembered Di making the
      claim that there was no domestic infant adoptions in OZ?

      Of course, then again, isn't she the one who claimed Ben Franklin was a
      president?

        I didn't say it was over. I said it was all but over. With only 78
        local adoptions in a country of 20 million people, I'd say it's all
        it's on its way out. Unlike the 120,000 local adoptions in the US of
        course.
