Call for funding to support the unborn

News Weekly, November 29, 2003
Sir,

On November 2, Federal Education Minister Brendan Nelson, received Australia-wide publicity and acclaim for his Government's $4.5 million plan to stop school bullies.

It was supporting sentiments attributed to the Minister that I found fascinating.

"We need to see our kids feel safe, protected, cared for and loved," asserted Brendan Nelson, and no doubt he meant it, and we all support such sentiments.

Yet this is a country with an ageing population which aborts 100,000 infants a year, in many cases with a Government medical subsidy.

How much more practical and commendable would be an administration that appropriated that $4.5 million, to support just some of the young and not so young mothers who deny potential Australians the gift of full-term life.

Tom King
Elanora, Qld
