Australian Senator: Maternity Leave Causes Abortions

So happy to know they have crazy assholes down under:

The outspoken Steve Fielding, from the conservative Family First Party, [presumably implying all opponents hate families] said women could attempt to cheat the centre-left Labor government’s plans for paid leave by deliberately conceiving a child they never intended to have.  “Drug addicts and welfare cheats can go out there and get themselves pregnant and then after 20 weeks have an abortion and still pocket the government’s cash,” he said.
