Right now in Queensland Australia two young people are on trial for having an abortion.
Australia considers itself fairly liberal and progressive but even Australians know Queensland is a hold-out for moderate whack jobs with nothing better to do than whinge about the old days, fear fading curtains (from daylight saving), and just generally piss the rest of the country off.
Now don't get me wrong, I have friends in Queensland but I know they are fighting the good fight. I am just saying the state, as a whole (or is that hole?) is quite
I cannot believe that these people are being put through a trial for making a very personal and probably sensible decision.
They aren't be tried for bringing in illicit drugs, as far as I can tell, they are being tried for having an abortion.
This all happened two years ago too.
So these poor folk have had 2 years of this crap hanging over their heads.
They could go to jail. WTF!
It seems like dodging one bullet in Queensland puts you in the path of another.
I am surprised the trial doesn't consist of throwing them off a cliff and seeing if they fly.
If they do fly then they are witches and will be put to death, if they don't then...well...splat (but if they survive that they'll be retried as witches because no-one can survive a fall like that).
In the words of Idiocracy "Carls Junior says Fuck You" Queensland.
You should be ashamed.
