Your Guide to Current Issues on Family, Life and Society

Christian advocacy group FamilyVoice Australia is very disappointed that White Ribbon Australia advocates for violence against unborn babies, having adopted a pro-abortion stance.

“While Australians would certainly acknowledge that the White Ribbon campaign has done much to raise awareness of family violence, their statement overtly calling for abortion, which is – by definition violence against the most defenceless in our society – seems at best unwise or at worst hypocritical,” said FamilyVoice Australia National Director Ashley Saunders.

“We are not surprised to learn that a number of churches have chosen to withdraw their support of the White Ribbon campaign, having learned of their pro-abortion position.

“As Christians our desire is to support the dignity of all human beings and defend against any kind of violence against the innocent or vulnerable,” Mr Saunders said.
