Tanya Plibersek Just Declared That “For Labor To Be Pro-Women It Must Be Pro-Choice”

For the Labor party to be pro-women it must be pro-choice, the party’s deputy leader Tanya Plibersek said on Wednesday night in a passionate speech about how far Australia still has to come to ensure women have reproductive freedoms.

“We need to make sure that women have autonomy over their bodies,” Plibersek told those gathered at a Canberra event organised by Emily’s List, a financial and support network for progressive Labor women candidates.

“Reproductive freedom is intimately tied to gender equality. For Labor to be pro-women, we must be pro-choice.

“Australia still has unfinished business on reproductive health.”
