Commenting on the story: Privacy warning over SA Govt demand for abortion data

This is absolutely outrageous and an unbelievable invasion of privacy that has no relevance to the statistics the Government requires.

I note that there are no details of the other party. Why not ask the name, address, age, occupation etc of the male involved and where and why the conception took place? Because that would be considered ludicrous, as is this.

Just one more step to tyranny. Citizens beware. This is what happens while you are focusing on other things. – Susan Jackson-Wood

This demand for for sensitive personal data on women needing abortion is chillingly reminiscent of current trends in the United States.

It seems far beyond the data collected on other elective surgeries, and an assault on the privacy of women seeking an abortion of any reason. – Margaret Dodd

I am utterly appalled by the government’s requirement for this amount of information with the new regulations.

Considering the recent breach of private information of the government’s payroll contractor affecting 80,000 public servants, what assurances can very vulnerable women have that their private information will be safe if this change occurs? – Grace Fitzpatrick
