Greens MP and health spokesperson Cate Faehrmann today spoke in favour of decrimimalising abortion in the NSW Legislative Council, saying:

“Whether or not some opposite can stomach hearing this, people have sex.” 

“Millions of people in this country have sex. 

“Some have a lot of sex. 

“Hopefully most have sex for enjoyment. 

“Apparently too men’s desire to have sex is often greater then women’s. 

“If we want to stop abortions in this country the only way to do that is to stop men having sex with women. 

“Doubt that’s going to fly.”
