Perusing Bartlett's highly useful breakdown of the Senate vote on RU486, noting the 'comrades' who voted against, and I see that 2 of the 3 women who voted against moving RU486 from Abbott to the doctors are Labor.
Labor women are more right wing than Liberals?
On women's choice?
To paraphrase the Herd, this party needs a fucking shake up....
Labor were 21 for, with the following 7 against:
Mark Bishop - WAI continue to grudgingly support conscience votes on issues like this, as well as the continued place within Labor of those who are fervently religious but otherwise tolerant and demonstrably left wing.
Stephen Conroy - Vic
Michael Forshaw - NSW
John Hogg - Qld
Steve Hutchins - NSW
Helen Polley - Tas
Ursula Stephens - NSW
Provided they are, of course.
