Anti-life politicians 'a useless commodity' (letter)


by Robert Bom

News Weekly, March 18, 2006
Sir,

Babies make the world go around. This basic knowledge seems to be escaping people from a European background.

In 1960, the proportion of people of European descent represented one quarter of the world's population. With birth control such as contraception, sterilisation and rampant abortion, it is expected that by 2050 that global share will have dropped to about 10 per cent.

Reductions like that - particularly through abortions - are accompanied by serious and painful economic, social and medical consequences. Yet our Australian Senate and House of Representatives still voted, by a comfortable majority, to encourage the introduction of the dubious abortion pill RU-486.

Drug companies have now assumed the mantle of responsibility and have declared that they are not willing to import the pill into Australia.

At the next federal election, we need to take stock and remove from the marketplace the politicians who encouraged women to increase the rate of abortions.

By voting for further controversial destruction, these anti-life politicians have proven themselves to be a useless commodity.

Robert Bom,
Rockhampton, Qld.
