Senator Boswell on the right to speak freely on marriage

Senator Ron Boswell has made an important contribution to the marriage debate in a speech recently delivered in the Senate.

Responding to the legal threat made against Toowoomba GP Dr David van Gend for a column he wrote in support of man-woman marriage, Senator Boswell said that:

“If people like Dr van Gend are forced to appear before the Anti-Discrimination Commission of Queensland, that is a threat to one of Australia’s greatest freedoms: the right to free speech. It is a major disincentive to people making a contribution to debate across Australia.”
