Sound of children playing strains abortion-bound mothers – A Marie Stopes International Australia abortion site is objecting to a planned childcare centre being built next door – they are worried that the happy sounds of children playing will be upsetting to women who are about to kill their own unborn children. Mayor Charlie Gregorini:. “It would be an emotional situation for someone who’s decided to have an abortion and then the last thing they hear before they enter the clinic is the happy voices of children.” The abortion site came to an agreement with the childcare center through a mediator: a two meter concrete wall would be erected to block the children’s sounds.
