Saturday’s March for the Babies and the ensuing craziness and behaviour of pro abortion lobby gives grave concern not only for freedom of all of us in Victoria but sets precedent for other states to be brought into disarray by those who would have a different opinion. My right to march quietly and show support for babies who die daily at the hands of so called doctors was compromised forever I believe. The police commissioner should hang his head in shame for not thinking that those of us who value in utero babies have a right to be protected from the violence heaped on us by a rabble mob. Had he and his underlings respected my /our right, and the right of those of us who believe that the Abortion Law of 2008 is wrong, there would have been open protection of those of us who were pelted, shoved, pushed, abused. The reality was that the few police who were there were just a “token” effort. Imagine not one arrest made of those who shoved, pushed, felled, abused the silent pro lifers including little ones and elderly, and this atrocity in broad daylight, on a beautiful Saturday afternoon, in “the world’s most liveable city.” A precedent and fuel ensured for the coming years.
The new law ensures abortion of babies to 40 weeks, that is full term, when we know that infants who are wanted and are helped can survive as premature as 21 weeks. The law and law makers in Victoria are asinine. the law needs to be repealed immediately, this will remove (in time) the fuel of pro abortion lobby who are now beginning to speak about “4th trimester abortion” (that is death of babies up to 3 months after birth). The Slippery slope has indeed been rewaxed and made more slippery.
Further to the chaos which was the March for the Babies, we have in the new abortion laws a removal of right of conscience of doctors and medical staff to refuse to participate in an abortion. Imagine! the Government telling us how our conscience must be dictated to by them. My own barometer for decision making removed because the Law says so. That is what Sect. 8 of the new abortion laws does. A doctor cannot refuse to participate in an abortion, encourage a woman to rethink her decision, offer alternatives, without threat to his own career and livelihood as we have seen with Dr Hobart and several others who have been targeted by the Medical Board. Is this what Victoria has come to? A new socialist state?
Sect 8. which intrudes on conscience needs immediate repealing because if this continues then the future means that the government can order to euthanise first infants and then others who do not fit criteria for making money. “Caesar” has violently taken control of what belongs to God….life, and we are seeing the after effects of this usurping.
