Yep, abortion is safe...  well isn’t it?  That’s what the abortion industry tells the vulnerable women coming to them down the ‘closed-door abortion-only corridor’ they have created.  According to the report, a 42 year old woman died after having an abortion at the renamed Marie Stopes International Maroondah abortion mill (previously called Croydon Day Surgery).

This abortion death house has been under investigation on four previous occasions – one has to wonder how many other problems there have slipped under the radar.  Of these investigations, one involved the anaesthetist James Latham Peters who is alleged to have infected over 50 women with Hepatitis C between 2008 and 2009.  Mark Schulberg, the doctor who owns the abortion mill was found guilty of unprofessional conduct in 2009 when an abortion was performed on an intellectually disabled woman without her consent; as well as for a late-term abortion being done on another woman who was subsequently hospitalised.  This is hardly a surprise —as seen time and again, the deathly abortion industry does not attract the cream of the crop of doctors. 

"... we confirm the death of a female patient, who attended our associate registered day procedure centre in Maroondah on Wednesday, December 14, passed away at Box Hill Hospital on Sunday, December 18," Ms Deveson Crabbe, chief executive (executioner?) of the Marie Stopes abortion mills said. 

The death is currently being investigated by the coroner.  This will not bring this woman back to life, it will not restore her baby to her womb, and it will not create a happy Christmas for her family.

Terry Sweetman, columnist, wrote an article (CM 21.10.11) unsurprisingly calling for the legalisation of abortion.  To him in particular, and all involved in the abortion industry in general, the question has to be asked — abortion is legal up to the day of birth in Victoria, has this made abortion safe?  Of course not!  Just because something is legal, does not make it safe. 

Abortion KILLS BABIES.  Abortion EMASCULATES MEN and robs them of their responsibilities. And tragically ABORTION HARMS WOMEN – sometimes in a deadly fashion.  

It would be tempting to yawn if it wasn't all so very serious.  A letter to the editor of the Courier Mail (Deal with this once and for all, 10-12-11) by Julie Bignall (branch secretary, Australian Services Union, South Brisbane) calls for the abortion law to be dealt with "once and for all" — no doubt that is what the lawmakers were doing when they wrote the law 100+ years ago.

Nothing has changed since — women still need help and support in unexpected pregnancies now as they did then, they don't need nor want abortion; life still begins at conception; and abortion still harms women, destroys babies and emasculates men.  Abortion whether "medical" or otherwise will never be moral or right.

One has to wonder are all the members of this particular union, the Australian Services Union, fully aware that some of their dues are being used to push forward an abortion agenda here in Queensland?  That their funds were used to support the abortion meeting held at the parliamentary annexe here in Brisbane in October this year where Leslie Cannold held the stage and urged all present to do all they could to get the Queensland laws relaxed so more babies could be killed in their mothers’ wombs?

One wonders how proud they all feel knowing that this is where their hard-earned cash is going; but the question really is, do they know?

Just when you thought there couldn’t possibly be any more convoluting of the truth that abortion is deadly to the baby and harmful to the mother, Planned Parenthood tweets that it is ‘sexy’.  Yes, you read that right — sexy!

According to the report only two people tweeted a response agreeing with PP’s tweet; no doubt one was probably the PP tweeter and a colleague!  

As a non-supporter of abortion tweeted, there is nothing sexy about the dismemberment of a child.

How much further down the gutter will PP go to make abortion ‘appealing’?  Haven’t they got the message yet — abortion is no longer ‘popular’ like it used to be as evidenced by the continually increasing numbers of people calling themselves pro-life, and they younger generation are to be thanked for that.  They have seen the sorrow and destruction of abortion in their relatives and friends and they don’t want to be part of it.

Please help close PP abortion mills by being part of a peaceful prayerful campaign by joining the 40 Days of Prayer for Life Campaign.  If there is none in your local area, you can pray at a specific time every week especially for this campaign.  On behalf of all the pre-born that will be saved, thank you in advance!

Reported in the Brisbane Times (6.12.11) is an interview with Campbell Newman, Leader of the LNP, where he has stated publicly that he and the LNP, should they gain government, will not change the abortion laws.  This is great news.  We urge you to write to him and thank him for this public statement and politely remind him that we will be closely watching this and hold him to his promise.

For those politicians currently in government we must make them feel very uncomfortable about changing the current Queensland abortion legislation.  Let them know that liberalising the abortion laws is not a vote winner as was evidenced by Bonny Barry losing the seat of Aspley and Karen Struthers in Algester seeing a very large swing away from her, a swing over and above the average.  These two women of the “sisterhood” were the ones most likely to put forward a private member’s bill pushing abortion.

Do not be put off by letters from the current premier or her party stating that “the government has no plans to put this issue on the agenda” (or similar wording) — we are well aware that it will not be a government bill but a private member’s bill.

The push referred to in the previous blog was to have the current abortion law put before the Law Reform Commission.  This is how they weedled their way into getting the law changed in Victoria.  Do not let this happen here.  Keep the pressure on our politicians – thanking those who do not wish to change the law and offering them help between now and the state election (due in the next 6 months) and letting those who are pro-abortion know that your help is going to a pro-life candidate.  Act now!

One the Australian government website, it states that there were 384 finalised adoptions in 2010–11 which was the lowest annual number on record being a 7% decline from 2009-2010 and a 66% decline from 1,142 adoptions in 1990–91. 

And what is the reason that this decline has occurred?  Well according to their own words, it “can be attributed to a fall in the number of Australian children adopted...”  Yes, you read that right.  There aren’t children for adoption because there aren’t children for adoption.  Red is the shirt because the shirt is red!

It continues that the decline is also due to the number of children considered to be in need of adoption and legally able to be adopted.

One wonders how the factor of 90,000+ abortions in Australia each year plays no part in their reasoning.  Any Year 2 child would be able to see and understand a graph showing that as the rate of abortions rose, there was a corresponding plummet in the rate of adoptions.  

It certainly brings to mind that old saying by Thomas Jefferson, “It is error alone which needs the support of government. Truth can stand by itself."
