Mr. Hawke had this to say about being a Liberal,
"The party should adopt tougher stands on social issues such as drugs and abortion so people know what we stand for. Nobody joins the Liberal Party to be left-wing. If you stand for compulsory student unionism, drug-injecting rooms and lowering the [homosexual] age of consent, you can choose the Greens, Labor or the Democrats."
Earlier, we prepared this elected, successful dish of Liberal MP.
MP Robyn Parker, who is part of the moderate Liberal faction and a former president of the Liberal Women’s Council, said recent discussions on abortion had been highly offensive to women and had taken place for the wrong reasons. Ms. Parker stated that,
"Any debate on abortion should be about supporting women and their choices, and it should ultimately be a decision made between a woman and her doctor, not a topic used to obtain political advantage on a ballot or anywhere else."
Tension has been simmering since the conservatives gained control of the Young Liberals.
Mr Hawke later denied that his criticism extended to the state leader, John Brogden, a moderate who has previously supported injecting-room trials and lowering the homosexual age of consent.
