Tegan Leach charged with procuring her own miscarriage and Sergie Brennan, charged with supplying drugs to procure an abortion



Tegan Simone Leach, 19, faced Cairns Magistrates’ Court yesterday on a charge of procuring her own miscarriage while her partner Sergie Brennan, 21, is charged with attempting to procure an abortion and supplying drugs to procure an abortion.

Police have alleged Mr Brennan organised for his sister to obtain the abortion pill misoprostol from her doctor in the Ukraine and smuggle it into Australia on a flight to Cairns.

Medical abortions are legal in Australia but only under the supervision of prescribing doctors.

Cairns gynaecologist Caroline de Costa said,
"Abortion should not be a crime; it should be controlled by the same health regulations that control things like removing an appendix or treating pneumonia. It is the only part of our health care that is in the criminal code."

Abortion always is and always will be a crime. Abortionists like de Costa don't seem to realise that pregnancy is not a disease like pneumonia or just a part of a person's body like an appendix. When an abortion occurs the death of an unborn child is the result.

How can anyone, with a straight face, liken a child to an appendix as if it's existence is optional? That's cold.

Some people think that the option to choose the death of an unborn child is more important than love.

People tend to only remove their appendices when they have a really good reason (i.e. it's killing them, or they're are afraid it will kill them, or they just don't think they'll be able to fully support an appendix properly in this messed up crazy world).

Anyway, legally what's happened here is that someone's boyfriends sister has decided to bring in some drugs from overseas that can instantly remove this poor girls appendix, without attempting to seek proper guidance from health professionals.
