Dutton cannot ignore pregnant women in his care

Media Release
Nick McKim 21 Aug 2017

Peter Dutton's denial of care and rights to refugees in his care on Nauru is an attack on their humanity, Greens Immigration spokesperson Nick McKim says.

"It is simply not acceptable for women to be denied basic health and reproductive rights just because it is politically convenient for Mr Dutton," Senator McKim said.

"These are ideological decisions that must be overturned."

"Basic human rights and freedoms are not negotiable - these women and their children must be brought to Australia immediately."

"The humanitarian crisis that Peter Dutton has created on Manus Island and Nauru needs to end now."

"Australia's prisons on Manus Island and Nauru must be evacuated, and every woman, child and man brought to Australia."
