Blood and lies mingle Open camp, society closed Tributaries of silence Devil deep blue sea Still no sanctuary given Nauru, sovereignty slain by Germany Britain Japan American and Australian - Ian Curr
Time is running out for a pregnant Somali asylum seeker requesting an abortion after she was raped on Nauru in July. says the ABC Radio National report on 8 Oct 2015
Pamela Curr is a refugee advocate from the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre and was interviewed on the ABC’s RN Breakfast.
Abortion is illegal on Nauru and the woman, now 14 weeks pregnant, has told advocates she’s desperate to undergo the procedure.
A campaign urging the Australian Government to step in and help the woman has so far gone unheeded, with the case now in the hands of Australian lawyers.
