There have been renewed calls for baby safe havens after a newborn was abandoned in front of a home in Logan, south of Brisbane. We think this is a great idea. Australian Senator Helen Polley has long championed this cause and this is her presentation to the 2011 Cherish Life conference. (The mother has subsequently come forward in this case, but this does not negate the need for these facilities.)
Cherish Life Queensland (previously Queensland Right to Life) is a non-denominational, non-party political association of people who are concerned about issues relating to a person's right to life, especially in relation to abortion, infanticide, embryo experimentation and euthanasia.
To promote a respect for and protection of the intrinsic worth of human life at all ages and all stages, and to express our commitment
by positively embracing and celebrating life ourselves.
To educate people on pro-life issues, maintaining their enthusiasm and dedication to life, and challenge the community conscience in matters of justice, equality and respect for all people born and unborn.
To strive for effective protection by law of defenceless human life - born and unborn.
To use all democratic means to persuade legislators that support for life is both a responsibility and a vote winner, and to increase the awareness in the general public of voter power.
To express our love and compassion by promoting creative, lifegiving alternatives and by encouraging the community to take responsibility for providing support and care for those oppressed by circumstances or unable to speak for themselves.
To maintain and develop a respectful and caring attitude to self and one another, and to provide the support necessary for us to be united in our commitment to life.
To engage in sensitive interaction with other groups and individuals in the pursuit of the above goals.
