FamilyVoice slams NSW abortion bill
Christian advocacy organisation FamilyVoice Australia is urging MPs to vote against the Reproductive Health Care Reform Bill 2019 set to be introduced in NSW Parliament this week.
“All life, whether born or unborn, holds intrinsic value and worth. Unborn babies should not be treated as any less human just because they have not yet passed through the birth canal,” FamilyVoice NSW Director Greg Bondar said.
“We urge both sides of the government to exert proper parliamentary scrutiny on a bill of extreme significance to human life and worth," Mr Bondar said.
“Any move to suspend normal parliamentary process, including committee scrutiny, fails to give the NSW public and their representative MPs the ability to voice concerns.
“Scientific evidence proves that babies feel the excruciating pain of abortion and mothers frequently report physical harm and mental anguish following the procedure.
“In any abortion, it’s not just the child that dies in its mother's womb. Especially in late term abortions, something else dies in the mother's heart.
“We are concerned that this bill opens up abortion to sex selection.
“Parliament must recognise the significant medical advancements that have reduced the age of surviving premature birth to about 22 weeks which is a clear indication of the child's full humanity.
“Australian laws must defend the right to life of all human beings from conception until natural death. It must work to protect the most vulnerable in society – the unborn child.”
