    You make many sweeping statements.

    Health services are not free, they are paid for by our taxes. Under this system higher income earners already DO pay more via higher marginal tax rates and the medicare levy surcharge (if not paying for PHI itself). This doesn’t take into account additional subsidies for disadvantaged groups, e.g. the PBS safety net card.

    Also, from where are you quoting that only 10% of deliveries are led by midwives? In public hospitals midwives still manage the majority of deliveries and only call for doctors if there is a complication they can’t manage.
