Well, that's one way to make a living

CANBERRA, Australia, October 23, 2008 ( - Thanks to a legal loophole, Australian mothers who abort their child in late pregnancy can collect a $5,000 bonus designed to turn around the country's plummeting birthrate, reports Australia Associated Press (AAP).

The law allows the payment - normally reserved for mothers who successfully give birth - to be awarded on compassionate grounds to women whose baby is stillborn. But because late-term abortions are registered as stillbirths, the "compassionate" payment is available to women who choose to abort as well.
