Left's hypocrisy (letter)


by Brendan Rowswell

News Weekly, November 20, 2004
Sir,

The hypocrisy of the left never ceases to amaze me.

Just months ago, gay-rights activists were lobbying for the Federal Government to support homosexual marriage legislation, and now they claim that issues of morality, such as abortion, should not be raised by members of parliament.

If 100,000 old-growth trees were destroyed each year, or 100,000 baby dolphins were killed, the left would be in uproar; but when men such as John Anderson and Tony Abbott, the Deputy Prime Minister and Health Minister of this country, protest at the deaths of 100,000 Australians, they are dismissed as religious fundamentalists.

It appears that the left's idea of free speech is one which pertains to homosexuals, trees and dolphins, but not the defence of human life.

Brendan Rowswell,
Beaumaris, Vic
