Frances Abbott Takes Another Stand For Marriage Equality W/ Emotional Vid”

Frances Abbott, whose father is the highest-profile politician in the No camp, features in a two-minute clip published by Australian Marriage Equality this morning in which she makes an emotional plea for a Yes vote, saying "marriage equality would make society a much better place".

'I look at aunty Chris and I don't think she planned to fall in love with Virginia, ' she said.

Ms Abbott added that while it is "well known that within my family we have people that sit on the other side of the fence" when it comes to the same-sex marriage debate, her parents raised her to stand up for what she believes in.

Earlier in the campaign, he expressed concern that making same-sex marriage legal will impede people's rights to freedom of speech and freedom of religion, and said plans to give everyone the right to marry whomever they love is just another ploy in political correctness.

Ms Abbott acknowledged the family divide on the issue, but said if her father was disappointed in her speaking out on marriage equality, he only had himself to blame. She also posted her completed survey form on Insta, though fyi Frances you forgot to cover the barcode, so maybe delete that one.

Tony Abbott last week said that while he "respectfully disagree [s]" with his daughter, he is "very proud of her".

Frances Abbott, 26, talks marriage equality.

"It never really changed anything, she was still aunty Chris".

On Friday, 38-year-old DJ Astro "Funknukl" Labe was charged with headbutting Tony Abbott in Hobart, leaving the former prime minister with a "very, very slightly swollen lip". "This is why it really doesn't make sense to me that it's still not allowed".

Ms Forster, a Liberal councillor for the City of Sydney, is campaigning against her brother on the issue.

Abbott claimed that because the man was wearing a "vote yes" sticker this was what could happen if the "yes" side wins the survey.

"While I disagree with her, I respect her right to have a different view".
