Queensland: Federal Nationals MP George Christensen labels his government’s $9.5 million Planned Parenthood donation “disgraceful.”

Queensland Nationals MP George Christensen has addressed a pro-life rally in Brisbane at the weekend, telling the crowd that the Government’s $9.5 million donation to International Planned Parenthood last year was a “disgraceful act.” Mr Christensen promised to write to Treasurer Scott Morrison in the coming week asking him to divert the funds to pregnancy assistance and crisis counselling services instead. He was joined at the rally by former Attorney General George Brandis’ replacement, Senator Amanda Stoker, who told the crowd that the Federal Government had a duty to protect children and babies.
