    The government introduced legislation last week which, if passed, would give Mr Abbott the power to restrict taxpayer funding for some types of surgery.
    The independent Doctors Reform Society, a staunch defender of the Medicare national health service, questioned whether the move was a backdoor way for the Catholic minister to push his private agenda of banning abortions.
    "Legislative changes which allow the health minister to decide himself what operations and procedures should be rebatable under Medicare strikes at the very heart of the universality of Medicare," the society's president Tim Woodruff said in a statement.
    "What is to prevent him stopping Medicare benefits for abortion."

    So his personal opinions most certainly are coming into his political domain

    If they are the worst quotes from someone who has been in the public eye for as long as he has, then he hasn't done too badly.
    Gillard has said more stupid quotes in the last month than he has in his career.
    I'm sorry.... I'm assuming if you're posting on a parenting forum you have children? Possibly a wife?

    How can you agree with a man who so clearly wants to take away women's rights? I sincerely hope you don't have daughters.

    Maybe that is why they are selling so many newspapers. They write about things that people want to read about. I love reading stories of how incompetent the Greens are.

    He isn't. That article was from back in 2005. It is not his policy or that of the Liberal party.
