Public Statement on ALP announcement on abortion funding
The rights of the unborn child are completely obscured by this policy.
We need to care for and support women who fall pregnant and do not wish to keep their child for whatever reason. But we must do that without jeopardising the life of the child.
A pregnancy is a life given by God. A pregnancy that is unwanted represents not a health problem but a responsibility for the whole society. Mandating public funds to end the lives of unborn children is merciless, unjustified and simply wrong.
We need policies which support the lives of children to be enhanced and nurtured so as to enrich our society.
