“AUSTRALIA is considering offering aid money for abortions in developing countries as the birth rate of East Timor surges to one of the world’s highest.

The possibility of AusAid-funded abortions was raised in a Senate Estimates hearing yesterday as a Democrats senator criticised Australia’s treatment of women in developing countries.”
