Cherish Life Queensland was founded in 1970 (as Right to Life Queensland), to advocate for the right to life from conception until natural death. As Australia's first pro-life group we had the honour of helping other states and territories set up their pro-life organisations. Cherish Life is one of the largest pro-life organisations in Australia.
We advocate for life through education, public events such as the March for Life, lobbying all levels of government, media engagement and engaging with our communities, particularly through our 14 branches around Queensland.
Cherish Life also campaigns at key elections for life, such as the 2019 federal election and the upcoming 31 October 2020 state election. We do this to help keep pro-abortion and pro-euthanasia MPs and parties out of government, so to protect human life. We have no political alignment or affiliation, but we will target those who target life.
The organisation is managed by executive director Ms Teeshan Johnson, and Dr Donna Purcell is the president of the Cherish Life Queensland board.
