Queensland Live Births Bill

If you are confident to write your own email from scratch, consider following points to include:
  • Human rights of newborns - The most fundamental right, enshrined in Article 3 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, is the right to life, liberty and security of person.
  • Discrimination against newborns - Current Queensland law lacks clear provisions for babies born alive during abortions. This bill addresses this gap.
  • The right to healthcare - Every child has the right to the highest attainable standard of health (Article 24 of the Convention of the Rights of the Child). This bill guarantees babies born alive receive the same level of medical care as any other newborn.
  • Strengthening ethical and legal frameworks - The bill strengthens Queensland's commitment to upholding human rights principles by aligning with existing legislation in South Australia and NSW.
