What about the babies rights to life? So abortion will still be available except the level of regulation is now a state issue. Isn't that how we do it here too? What's the problem? United States Supreme Court overturns Roe v Wade. Time for all good US electors to ‘dump’ Republicans in the next Federal and State elections.

As a none religious person it's easy to see this decision was pressured mostly by religious types, perhaps these people could move to the middle east if they prefer this way of life & control, USA is a country of freedom & religion should not mix with human rights or politics Devastating. Trump's legacy.

Why is Australia allied to the Violent, anti social, North American Taliban? China = bad USA = good.🤣🤣🤣 Western democracy and rules based order. 🤣🤣 Protect that right though to arm yourself to the teeth with weapons that kill . what a sad confused country Haha that's freedom

Flights mask rules to remain until states and territories agree to changesAdvice on flight mask mandates hasn't yet changed, but Health Minister Mark Butler wants all states and territories to agree to a national approach when it does. How's Sweden going? Oh look ... Easy. If you want or need to wear a mask, wear one. If you don't want or need to wear a mask, don't wear one. With covid deaths rising, what harm does it do anyone to wear a mask - properly- on a flight for the sake of others ... or just so your own holiday isn’t ruined Surely it’s a pretty small ask? protectthevulnerable

I feel for all those that can’t have abortions. We are thinking of you. How was this even allowed to happen? A disgusting outcome. Shame, America. Shame! No longer the “United States”but the great divide America 🤷‍♂️ America is broken. We are witnessing the fall of the Roman empire Mandate vaccines, sorry you loose the argument on my body my choice.

It's a tuff issue but one they should be able to reach a compromise on. When the baby develops consciousness and can feel pain and hear it shouldn't be aborted. That still give the parents plenty of time to decide. After that it's too late. Full term abortions are disgusting Republicans support the right to life from the moment of conception to the moment of birth. Then your right to life is subordinated to someone else’s right to have an automatic weapon. RoeVsWade SecondAmendment

And what's the world coming to when you can't end a Childs life, right? Ps. Great photo of butthurt lefties BTW ABC.😏👍

Power industry fires warning as states splinter on landmark reformNSW, Victoria and Queensland want different rules for fossil fuel power plants, but big business says such an arrangement will add to sky-high energy prices.

When do the mostly peaceful riots start? 🍿 DefundTheABC The whole country is going backwards. I've been missing this it's none of your business which medical procedures I've had and my body my choice energy for the last 2 years. Sad sad day for the Land of the Free 🤦‍♂️ Wonderful news!!. Many innocent babies’ lives will be saved.

America considers itself the beacon of democracy but I would say it’s no different to how the Teleban. Access to medical procedure on a healthy adult being a right always was a very odd concept. A lesson on responsible medical regulation vs reasonable access to such procedures. The second part is the big concern and the debate the US has to have now.

this is the country Australia shares values with The USA hates women. The USA hates children. But, if they were guns...

NSW is degenerating into one of the worst run states in AustraliaOPINION: NSW promised to spend $15 billion on infrastructure and debt repayments that it is instead gambling on global financial markets. the premier is in desperation to win the next election When we are short of labour more infrastructures mean we are importing Nigerians for construction workers We have 2 Nigerians So far from Africa just for construction

😢 The court has not taken away the right to an abortion. It has ruled that abortion laws should be decided by elected representatives rather than unelected judges. Freedom is dying in the West. Goodbye USA, hello Gilead. They carry on they are the worlds greatest democracy .Lying political party , lying Supreme Court judges , mix religion with politics , Qanon theories !! It’s more the worlds greatest mental institution !!

This is just the beginning and it’s terrifying. 😔 If a woman is raped, she must carry the baby to term and give birth, because it's God's will. If the child goes to school and gets shot, that is good because the right to bear arms over-rides God's will. It's hard to understand. I find it ridiculous that a modern western country like the US would take away the right of adults to kill their babies. I’m in shock. Where is this world headed?

Sad to see the trump placed court push back woman's rights by decades And if you thought their gun laws were questionable… here’s proof of what a f**ked up country we’re told we should blindly fall in behind, and follow as the great leaders and policemen of the free world (my arse!). 🙄🙄🙄

States spend big on health, but if you build a $1.3b hospital will the doctors come?Construction will soon begin on a new hospital in Toowoomba, but doctors are concerned that an interstate bidding war might leave it short on staff.

The experiment that is America continues to crumble. Luckily, we have a government that won’t follow the US… for the next couple of years at least. Very good decision… courts aren’t supposed to make laws. So now let the elected officials make laws that in sync with the views of those that elect them. The rot finally explodes to the surface of the timber house framing. In a few weeks to months it will topple over and fall in a heap of festering ruined timber. Sad.

Perhaps these are the moments when Americans realise their ancient laws and legal system are no longer fit for purpose and they need to redesign their entire legal framework Women’s rights set back 50 years. And now they will go after same sex marriages. I’m sure of it. Brain-dead country I expect the return of political violence by the left, also incited and supported by the ABC as the previous political violence was.

The Covin will not be happy 🔥 Hey but it's ok to let kids own machine guns! What a country Time for everyone to get fixed. It should be free.

US Supreme Court overturns Roe v Wade, wiping out constitutional right to abortionWomen’s reproductive rights will be severely curtailed in the US after the Supreme Court repealed the landmark Roe v Wade ruling. Fact, Trump nominated 3 judges on this SC. Descending into Christian authoritarianism So there must be more deaths in abortion than people walking around with guns killing innocent kids. Get your priorities right.

Everyone that has a problem with this can have this opinion because their parents were pro life. It's ok leftzis. You can still get your babies cut up alive in left wing states. What can even be said about this? Fucking hell... And it begins… look at my boobs😘
