Too much damage done to asylum children

President and paediatrician Dr Paul Bauert said Mr Morrison was ultimately responsible for “child abuse” as a result of Australia’s asylum seeker detention policy.

The risk of psychological and physical damage that children were exposed to in detention centres represented gross negligence, he said.

As the legal guardian of children arriving by boat, as well as babies born while mothers were in detention, Mr Morrison was responsible for what amounted to “child abuse” and must be condemned, Dr Bauert said.
