Queensland election: what are your candidates’ views on abortion?

In the lead up to an election it can be difficult to know where the candidates vying for your vote sit on a particular issue. This counts doubly for an issue like abortion, where even sitting MPs are often reluctant to share their views until a piece of legislation is put before them.

In the past we’ve surveyed MPs and candidates pre-election to establish their views on abortion law, health service provision, sexuality education and other sexual and reproductive health issues. The short timeframe of this election makes this impossible – but we’re not giving up.

Our team of volunteers is currently compiling a list of sitting MPs and candidates in each electorate around the state. Next week we’ll start contacting them via twitter to ask their opinion. You can follow these conversations and check their responses by following us on twitter (if you’re not already). We’ll also be sharing responses here, and on our facebook page.
