The Advertiser (Adelaide Now) have reported that humanitarian, Robyn Grace, is coming to the aid of desperate migrants "spending thousands helping pregnant women on temporary visas keep their babies" - pregnancies that would otherwise be terminated.
According to the report, "The 43-year-old Mt Barker resident is meeting the medical costs which the women and their partners can't afford because they are being allowed into the country without private health insurance, have no access to Medicare and work in low paying jobs."
The article also stated that "Mrs Grace has funded five migrant births with the help of donations at a cost of around $7500 each since 2009". She said "They wanted to keep their babies and I helped out, but who knows how many others are out there in the same situation without anyone to turn to."
The article describes the desperate situations of two immigrant couples who are delighted to have received support from Mrs Grace, after originally being referred to have abortions.
Life Network Australia congratulates Robyn for her ongoing commitment to women and families needing support and to their precious babies.
The article said that "A spokeswoman for Minister Bowen said the department had "commenced a review" of mandatory private health requirements for visa holders".
