I've sat on this for so long it is tearing me apart and I've decided to go public.
While he was Minister of Health he Abbott denied Asbestos sufferers access to subsidised medicine.
Because of that, my family was forced to sell the family home to pay for treatment for my father while we tried unsuccessfully to get compensation in the courts (the delaying proceedings meant my father died in my arms before the case was heard). Our finances were depleted (I'm still in debt after 10 years), and he died suffering and in pain due to Abbot's policies when our money ran out. [http://www.reddit.com/user/fistman,2013]
