Bid to scuttle pregnancy support services (letter)by Brian HarrisNews Weekly
, June 24, 2006
In the last roll of the dice, Australian Democrat Senator Natasha Stott Despoja has put together complicated legislation for Federal Parliament which, if successful, will close down Catholic pregnancy support services.
However, there are good women who staff the phones, 24 hours a day, across the nation, and who give all their support to many women who are terribly frightened that they may be pregnant and don't know what to do.
The issue came under the spotlight when Prime Minister John Howard and Health Minister Tony Abbott decided to give $50 million dollars to help in pregnancy support.
However, Senator Stott Despoja hopes that, under her proposed legislation, pregnancy support services will be heavily fined if they do not comply with her law.
The general public knows what goes on in abortion clinics where innocent unborn babies are killed in their thousands.
